This is a leader's book that if they put into practice, their organization will be more apt to follow. By practicing play, it in turn leads to better job satisfaction and less attrition. We know WHAT to say when it comes to work/life balance, but do we actually DO it? Are we hurting our own personal and professional growth by not putting to practice more play? All I know, is I will read one page a day in this book, so as to never lose sight of life's objective.
There I was. The keyboard keys dropping like anchors, each stroke reverberating the sound of corporate drudgery as it sank my soul further and further into the depths of my cubicle. Each day another step into synergistic monotony.
And yet hark! What light through yonder cubicle window broke?
It was Charlie Hoehn. Floating down from the heavens on his gold-lined seraph wings, the plaid wunderkind with his TED Talks and rugged man chin gracefully alighted on the 1/4" stained carpeting, bringing tidings of joy and fulfillment from the world's colorful leaders to my tiny whiteboard-clad office-cabin.
This book...was in his hands.
After I read it, my soul, it lifted.
To this day my coworkers are in disbelief.
'You actually read a book?', they say through fits of laughter.
And when I display to them the pages with original portrait artwork and short inspirational quotes, they knew I had.
tons of great quotes / wisdom as well in addition to being aesthetically beautiful!
It is a reminder to enjoy life outside of our screens and to consciously seek play and not take the day-to-day responsibilities of life so seriously.
Play for a Living really is one of the most beautiful books ever bound and is an eclectic collection of quotes and artistry.
Make the choice to play for a living, it will improve your life
