Thought of the day - Play More!

don't stop playing because we grow old; We grow old because we stop
playing." - George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish playwright and
essayist (via Fast Company blog)

I love this quote for it's simplicity and for it's pure truth. I think writing is a type of playing, and I try to play and write as much as I can. It's one of the reasons I'm a big brother/mentor. I get to enjoy playing with my 14 year old brother in whatever he does. We play basketball, we play video games, we go to the mall, we hang out, and we never take ourselves too seriously.

At work, it's the same way for me. I try to laugh as much as I can and I encourage others to do the same.

Stay young. Start playing more NOW!

This is excellent advice, Phil. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Phil

My favourite GBS quote is:

"The problem with communication is the illusion that is has been accomplished"

Wonderful advice and I would endorse it 100%
Thanks, great advice. Made me think of what I read yesterday, this post on Bernie Dekoven's funlog.

"Playfulness is one of the signs scientists look for when trying to determine the health of a herd of animals. The healthier the animals and the safer the herd, the more they play."
