Play is as important as work. In fact, imagine waking up in the morning thinking you are not preparing to go off to work, but play. That’s a radical shift in thinking, and one with major implications. If you are in a job for the paycheque and not the passion, then this might not apply. However, the introduction of play, and even more importantly, the permission to play, could turn you into a more productive and happier person.

We’ve all heard the saying ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’ and never has this been more true. The demand placed on us in the modern, downsized workplace is a vicious cycle of more work, and more pressure to get that work done so you can do even more work. Anything not directly related to getting tasks done is thus considered wasteful.
