Fun is one of VVM’s unfair competitive advantages. Here is why…
People assume you have to make things formal and stuffy if you want to be “real.” Formal and stuffy is a drag. People who help you eventually do it out of a sense of duty… which wears out over time.
Make everything fun and you give people something. You recharge them. You get more engagement, better engagement, and you all have fun doing it.
Simple example: the trash has to get taken out. No one would confuse this with a fun task but it has to get done. So at VVM HQ we have “the piggy game.” Anyone who takes out a bag of trash gets a point. Do it with style and you get bonus points.
Sometimes we are racing each other to take out bags of trash… and we’re laughing while we do it.
Win. Win. Win.
