You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone that thinks writing emails, attending meetings, or setting agendas are “fun.” Enlightening, maybe. Challenging, sometimes. Boring, probably. (And if you do find them fun, you can probably stop reading now.)
That being said, we’re all in the same boat, which is why we can laugh about them and share horror stories over drinks. But if you want an extra stress-relieving option, Sarah Cooper’s activity and coloring book, Draw What Success Looks Like: The Coloring and Activity Book for Serious Businesspeople, might do the trick. From coloring in overused buzzwords to literally “getting everyone on the same page” (hint: Stare at the same piece of paper) to filling in an ad libs email, you’ll have so much fun you’ll forget why you hated all these things in the first place.
We’ve collected our favorite activities for you to print out and try between mundane tasks, but for plenty more sarcastic humor, buy the whole book here.
