“The opposite of play is not work – the opposite of play is depression.
Respecting our biologically programmed
need for play can transform work.
It can bring back excitement and newness to our job.
Play helps us deal with difficulties,
provides a sense of expansiveness,
promotes mastery of our craft and is an
essential part of the creative process.
Most important, true play that comes
from our own inner needs and desires is
the only path to finding lasting joy and
satisfaction in our work.
In the long run, work does not work without play.”
– Stuart Brown from ‘The Gifts of Imperfection’ by Brene Brown
