E.E. Cummings said, “The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.” I agree. Yes, the demands of leadership are ever present and the decisions we make have important consequences. But along the way we must learn to take our work seriously but not ourselves. Make it a point to carry yourself lightly and learn to laugh. Long after the seriousness and demands of leadership have subsided it is your ability to laugh that will be your most cherished companion. Loosen up. Enjoy the journey. Laugh!
