Today's inspiration Friday is a little bit different. It's all about being inspired to keep a good attitude.
You know how I am all about living a beautiful life? Well, that carries over to my grown up girl job as well...
We recently had a massive budget cut at the not-for-profit organization that is my grown up girl job. Huge. Cut the budget in half. Nine of the staff of 23 were laid off. So sad. Those of us remaining are still a bit stunned. And talk about deflated morale.
Something needed to be done to rally the remaining troops, to inspire them. My fabulous friend in the cube next to mine had an idea. Let's spice up Friday mornings with something really outside of the box. Over the top inspiration. But what?
Oh, I don't know. How about one of these, and maybe this, or this?
That's right people, we brought "Disco Friday's" to economic development in the biggest little city. (and they say econmic development is dry, dull and uninspiring...)
Now, come Friday mornings at 8 AM, the florescent lights in the office are off and the blinds are closed. We crank up the music, turn on the disco ball, and, it's instant dance fever for the first half hour of the day. Moonwalking,the electric slide.Oh, and Michael Jackson's PYT. It's 1978 all. over. again. Everyone dances. Everyone laughs, everyone feels inspired. Oh yeah. It's the only way to start a Friday at a grown up job.
