Personal Growth with Michael and Carolyn
At Loveworks, we believe that one of the ways that you can become one of the best versions of yourself is to focus on personal growth. We love curating things like books, music, organizations, blogs, or resources that have encouraged your personal growth.
Today we are going to give you a life hack: gamify the things you don’t necessarily like to do!
“In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and – SNAP – the job’s a game.” – Mary Poppins
Kyle Allison: Entrepreneur, Author, and Catalyst for Positive Change
Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs Kyle Allison learned at a young age the risk and rewards of small businesses. Kyle worked in his family businesses all through high school where he learned a strong worth ethic, how to manage projects, and think on his feet. The Allison family owns Allison’s Fun Incorporated, a corporate event company that produces events across the South-Central US. The family’s newest venture, Altitude 1291 is home to 27,000 square feet of indoor fun, including bowling, laser tag, arcade, VR, and a full-service restaurant. Kyle stays involved in the community, as he has served on the Norman City Council, Visit Norman board of directors, and the board of the Norman Chamber of Commerce.
Kyle’s ADVICE –
I would say work hard, play hard. I’ve lived by that. I think that everyone should. Sometimes you have to celebrate because you can get caught up in working. Take some time to play. Take some time to reflect on what you’re doing. A lot of times, play brings the stimulus that I need to know what is next. It gives me time to relax and play and reflect. Put those hours in giving your best, go 100%, but then know that when it’s time to play. So that’s my simple advice. Work hard, play hard. I live by it. I think it works.
- Explore your options so that you can discover your true passion
- It’s easy to go to work when you’re having fun
- You never know when you’re going to get a yes, so keep asking
- Focus on yourself and how to be the best version of you
