Stress in the workplace LO27062

Replying to LO27038 --

>In a learning organization, work would be fun, exciting, and healthy.

Rick, I am wondering whether this is a valid promise for LO's? May be some
more sobering discussion is needed. Even in a LO the toilets will have to
be cleaned. Fun? Exciting?

Striving for fun and excitement makes one vulnerable to "being pulled
around by emotions" (see my previous mail), especially by sellers of
treasure maps of how to find this ("buy these drugs, enjoy the trip").
After 6 (7?) years and more than 27000 mails it is clear, that it is not
the promise of a treasure map that keeps us together and going, on the
contrary, whoever asked for such a map here had to be disappointed.

But nevertheless, let us gather more completions of the sentence:

In a learning organization, work would...
If I worked in a learning organization, my work would...

Looking forward
Liebe Gruesse,
