Fun Factor


If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life.

But fun doesn't come easily every moment.

When I homeschool my kids, our rule is, "if it isn't fun, we don't do it."

I want my kids to love learning even more than I want them to learn.

And it works. They love to learn. They beg for more schoolwork.

As much as I love filmmaking, sometimes it loses it's fun for me...

Does this happen for you too?

Here's how to make it fun again:

For an activity to feel fun, it has to fall within your "sweet spot" of difficulty.

If it starts to feel either too challenging or too simple, it loses its fun factor.

So if your work feels too challenging, simplify.

Reward yourself along the way, invite a friend, or turn on some music.

Allow it be raw and imperfect. Laugh at your mistakes.

If your work feels too boring, up-level the challenge!

Give yourself a deadline, a creative limitation, or make it a competition with a friend.

Use this principle to increase the fun in whatever you're doing this week.
