Do you think having a driverless car would boost your productivity during your commute? If you’re not sure, you’re not alone. Wouldn’t be surprised if this changed over time though.

Do you learn more when you’re having fun at work? This study found a link. Makes sense to me - fun helps to take us off the defensive, making us more open to new experiences (which you might remember if you read about the discover-defend axis in “How to Have a Good Day”).

This study found that injecting a bit humor at work can boost the way people see our status, competence and confidence. Not much downside to having things fall flat, either.

I like this - measuring time in days, not years, might help get us moving toward our long-term goals. It’s a great tool for overcoming the “present bias” that causes us to procrastinate (and you can find others in Chapter 8).
