Summary

A guide to gaining personal and profess ional success by putting the fun back into life -- with a few laughs along the way. The author mixes anecdotes from his own experience with witty observations on life in general to demonstrate that "the key is excellence, not seriousness". An integrated approach to dealing with a wide spectrum of life challenges. The author addresses both business and personal issues that typically present themselves at home or in the office: stress, health, communication, parenting, conflict, meetings, hobbies, and even death. Each chapter includes action tips that will help readers put fun into everything from project management to weight loss. Written by a humorist who is also a trained therapist and prolific presenter. The author uses his comic observations to teach serious lessons he has learned from his years as a social worker working with terminally ill patients and troubled children. He has delivered presentations to over fifty thousand people in over five hundred associations, government agencies, non-profit organisations, and corporations.
