Law five: The law of business as a game

Carl Bates writes in his book The Laws of Extreme Business Success about the 12 laws of business success. Law 5 is all about having fun, but in a serious way. Life and business is a game: played by rules, but fun needs to be the underlying outcome. We could not agree with this one enough. The law states:

Extreme business success requires you to realise that business is a game, and that when you treat it as such you will achieve success more easily. The law of business as a game focuses on three key elements of a game which are critical to success: having a winner’s mentality, understanding the game rules and enjoying the game. Business should be a fun experience in which you play the game of business within a structured framework. When you take yourself and your business too seriously, you lose the pleasure of the journey along the way.
