George Bernard Shaw stated, “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”
So I want to shift work to play any chance I get. Major mind shift. Just to keep me from growing old. But, as important, to give me energy! I notice that when I change something from work to play, energy and creativity increase. I noticed this in my own life whether I was in College, as a Trainer or a Manager. The repetitive nature of the tasks can get boring and monotonous. However, as soon as I shifted my mind into thinking something was fun, I noticed a rush of energy. How quickly things changed when I felt I was playing whereas before I was just working. I was just growing old. It’s fearless to play while all those around you are working.
