Play MORE – it’s not waste of time!

Play More

Here's something I need to get off my chest: ⁣

We need to stop this overly rigid pursuit to PUSH OURSELVES & ACHIEVE all the time. ⁣

I can't listen to another guru saying stuff like: do the hard thing, hack the perfect morning routine, hustle, optimize your sleep, get IV drips to make up for the stress. All this biohacking, playing hard to succeed, pushing through the uncomfortable, blah blah blah... ⁣

I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with those things in small doses, but we've gone too far! ⁣

WE'RE OVERDOING IT. ⁣

We're juggling a thousands balls, and we're shaming ourselves if we drop one. And it has the opposite effects on our growth & mental well-being. 

We forgot that life is about LIVING, NOT about hustling TO LIVE ONE DAY. We lost ourselves in the everyday seriousness that grew out of proportion. 

We get into the grinding mode, moving through the motions, withholding play for "SOMEDAY" when we'll finally arrive (or maybe retire) so we can get more work done now. ⁣
We're serious & deliberate about EVERY-freaking-THING!⁣

WE FEEL GUILTY ABOUT HAVING FUN.

We shame ourselves if we're too goofy. We view play time as a guilty pleasure. After all, it seems so unproductive, impractical, a waste of time, maybe even childish.

  • When did we stop doing things JUST FOR FUN, changed all the silly books for only the ones that teach us stuff, replaced all the playing for grinding, quit being spontaneously carefree?⁣
  • When did we stop doing things just to SEE WHERE THEY'LL TAKE US? ⁣
  • When did we learn that growth & success need to be EARNED with uncomfortable sh*t?
  • ⁣When have we become a bunch of BORING, SAD, BUSY ADULTS? ⁣
  • When did we learn that we can't be fun if we want to be SUCCESSFUL?⁣

AREN'T YOU TIRED OF THIS?

Because I sure am. ⁣

All I want is to ENJOY LIFE, BELLY LAUGH, BE PLAY, BE SILLY, WASTE TIME, FORGET WHAT TIME IT IS!⁣

AND PLAY MAKES LIFE BETTER

  • I believe that we can be BOTH adults and fun. ⁣
  • I believe that a bit of fun time and being playful can be BENEFICIAL, making us more productive & happier in everything we do. ⁣
  • I believe that things DON'T need to feel heavy to work. They can feel like fun & be freaking effective. Having a good time is not the enemy of success.⁣
  • I believe that EVERYONE can embrace new experiences to grow & reconnect with their true selves. ⁣
  • I believe that trying new things seems trivial, but is a DOORWAY to many good things, like courage, creativity, playfulness, growth, understanding, bringing back excitement, or feeling alive.⁣

What do you think?⁣
