We believe people don’t perform at their highest levels unless they are having fun doing it.

– Eric Ryan + Adam Lowry, Cofounders of Method, The Method Method

To this weary worker, the ideals espoused in The Method Method of a modern workplace seem dreamy and farfetched.  Reading Ryan and Lowry’s book feels like reading fantasy because I work in a typical workplace entrenched in the traditional ways of doing things.  I’m so inspired by their ideas on creating an office culture that is both fun and productive as well as nurturing and encouraging.

If you can’t be yourself at work, you’re not going to do good work.

It seems so simple and uncomplicated, so why do traditional workplaces have such a hard time understanding this?  I long for the workplace utopia discussed in these pages.  Method, take me away!
