“Serious play is not an oxymoron; it is the essence of innovation.”
Play is essential to creativity and innovation but we often see it as a either a luxury or waste of time.
Experimentation and play allow creativity to flourish.
When you let yourself play, it is usually without expecting a certain outcome.
That alone allows freedom to try new things or ask what if kinds of questions.
Some of my best jewelry designs have come from that state of playing around and seeing what would happen.
You also tend to be in a more relaxed state when you play.
Play also implies fun. Who doesn’t want more of that? I know I do!
How can you add more play to your life?
