Things to consider
- Create deeper and engaging conversations with people by asking more interesting openers
- Bantering with people is a form of play
- There's often an assumption that only certain activities qualify as play.
- Play and fun aren’t an activity they are an attitude or a feeling
- Fun and playfulness actually bring us closer together as human beings.
- If you do have to use willpower to keep doing some activity that's being marketed to you as play, then it's not play anymore.
- Fun is any moment when three states coincide; playfulness, and connection and flow. This can definitely happen at work. Even on Zoom!
- Rules and structure can give people permission to be playful in an unexpected context.
