I am a big believer in play. Not play as the opposite of work but rather play as an approach to work. I’m pretty sure play is important in all kinds of jobs but I know it is important in open-ended jobs that require a lot of problem solving and innovation. It’s easy to get in a rut with your thinking and your daily approach to work. Flexing the boundaries of a problem space, getting comfortable with saying, “I don’t know,” or even just laughing can relax you enough to begin seeing new solutions. Below are few examples of my "work" with play.
