HAVE FUN, is a core value of Drexel.  Super easy right?


Yet, sometimes I see people stressed out from our “busyness”… heads down…eyes flaming…shoulders burdened…and pressure building.  Or “whatever” has taken in.  I don’t see how I make a difference at Drexel.

Here’s some advice:


Your boss or gulp, even Joe,l can be a little bi-polar, intimidating or even worse over-bearing.  His “accountability” efforts and passion for making Drexel great have come across to you as crude or even worse.  It’s like they don’t even appreciate you sometimes or understand you.  Today maybe they need a little of their own advice.


Your customer has crazy demands and wants it not later but now.  So do 10 other customers.  Now.  It is all coming in a little too fast.


Today the weather has got you.  It’s rainy, snowing, icey, hot, cold, damp, windy, dusty.  Heck it’s Wisconsin this could all be in the same day.


You didn’t hit your goals.  Maybe you don’t even have any goals.   You let yourself of someone around you down.  You hit a road bump and failed.


Your teammate or vendor screwed up and made you look bad.

KICK THEIR ASS.  … Umm… Have fun anyways.


You want to be the best version of yourself don’t you?

Ultimately isn’t that why you are on this planet?  To be the BEST VERSION of you!

Doesn’t the best version have fun?


Most of the time you won’t be appreciated or recognized.  That’s OK.  Just keeping doing the work.  Keep making a difference.

You will never regret it.

Seriously, what other of our competition has figured this out?  What vendor?  I can’t think of any!

This is our Iphone.  This is our Miller Lite.  Having fun is our game changer.

Simply we are telling the world–

“Have fun.  Work with us!”
