Does your work ever set aside time for seminars and team-building? Although we may dread the hokey activities and motivational lectures, we usually walk away feeling more uplifted than we expected. This group received an extra special lesson, all thanks to a few packs of balloons – check it out.
A group of 50 was listening to a seminar lecture, when the speaker began to pass out balloons. He asked everyone to write their name on the balloons, which were then collected and placed in another room.
The group of 50 was then let in, and told to find the balloon with their name on it. The room exploded in chaos, as everyone frantically searched for their name. After 5 minutes, no one had found their balloon.
The speaker stopped the group, and asked everyone to pick up a random balloon and find the person it belonged to. It only took a few minutes for everyone to be reunited with their balloon.
The point of the exercise? Running and pushing your way through life is not the path to happiness. Work together, raise up your neighbors and genuine happiness will find you. This is the purpose of human life.
