Games are everywhere.
They’re on every continent, in every town, and all over the internet. And for good reason. They’re fun!
They're also powerful. Games are designed to be accessible to many (rather than just a few), and they can teach us all a thing or two about ourselves and the world around us. When we know the rules, compete on equal footing, and cooperate with a shared sense of victory, everyone wins.
So let’s challenge ourselves to bring games back into the parts of our lives that need them most.
Let’s face it, at work we get stressed, we get anxious, we get bored.
We force ourselves to try to think our way out, and we leave half our smarts on the table by pushing down our emotions. Work can be just plain hard. And hard is not bad… but when it’s all hard, no fun, it’s just a drag.
Our work can become soulless, heartless, mindless.
So let’s inject some fun into our work…
We don’t ever start a new relationship hoping it will sour. But many do.
We start a romance hoping for the best, but most don’t end happily. We start a business partnership hoping for a mutual victory, but too often someone gets screwed. Sometimes everyone does.
Let’s add some meaning to our most impactful relationships and deliberately build better ones with each other.
Dreams. We all have them.
They are part of what make us human. And when we find someone who shares them with us, it can be magical.
Dreams are all around us. But we can’t achieve them alone. Even our smallest dreams are sparked by the people in our lives who inspire us to reach for something more.
So let’s come together to share our dreams and build a better future, today.
