Being Too Serious Blocks Your Success

Are you having fun? Do you get a thrill from your work? Do you enjoy waking up each morning?

Myths about work can hurt your progress. "Work is not supposed to be fun." "You must buckle down and get serious."

"When life becomes serious, a man becomes less cause and greater effect. If life gets really serious, his value drops to practically zero.
