The Importance of Play (GWTW73)

I wasn’t expecting to learn much on my vacation, but the biggest lesson I learned came from my friend’s father-in-law: “Chris, we work hard, so that we can play hard, which then refuels us to work hard.” In this episode of Getting Work To Work, I talk about play and how it impacts our work, is essential for our growth, and is an antidote to boredom and monotony.

Four Things To Remember About Play

  1. Play doesn’t need purpose, but keep an eye out for lessons to learn while playing.
  2. Play brings perspective and change through stimulation and reflection.
  3. Play changes my face, my posture, and how I feel.
  4. Play stokes the fire of my curiosity and leads me to ask, “How can I play more?”
