I'd like to think that I am the world's expert on seriousness.
Seriously, I kid you not.
Ever since I noticed my serious attitude as 10-year old boy I've been seriously serious.
I wish I could tell you that it helped me with the 'ladies' - being the world champion of seriousness - but, alas it did not. Apparently, the 'ladies' are fans of fun, of light-heartedness, and of people not taking themselves so, dare I say it, seriously. (I think this rings true for the 'gentlemen', too.)
Hmm, So why so serious? Why did I choose to take the joy out of the moment, to look at the serious side instead? Hmm... (Another time!)
As you'll see in the video below, it's good to take some parts of life seriously - the work parts of life. Doing so (hopefully) means that life is more fun. But it ain't good to take yourself seriously, it really ain't.
Seriousness represents a lack of ease with self, a lack of ease with life. And nothing is easy when you're ill at ease. And I should know, remember, because I AM a world expert on seriousness.
Or at least I was... once!

"The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one's work seriously and taking one's self seriously. The first is imperative and the second is disastrous."
