Podcasting Pearl #5: Humor Us.

Psychology: this podcast made me smile.

The average four-year-old child laughs 300 times a day. By contrast, it takes more than two months for the average 40-year-old adult to laugh that many times.

We stop trying to have humor around 25. This is highly correlated with work.

Ways to get fun:

  1. observe what is true, not what is funny
  2. make fun of it:
    • exaggeration
    • callbacks
    • etc…

Laughing helps to build confidence:

  • in your colleagues
  • in yourself

Actionable:
Don’t be professional:

  • act professional
  • be human
