Odds are you aren’t having enough fun…especially if you just snorted at that statement!
My sis was in town this past week and though we aren’t the best planners in the world we do manage to set the intention to do something fun, silly or out-of-the-ordinary on each visit.
Over the last few years we’ve managed to go zip lining for the first time (we started out chicken-hearted and now can’t wait to go again), alligator watching by air boat at night (ugh-buggy but fascinating…no rush to do it again), go cart racing (always good fun), feeding alligators at Gatorland (yes, I live in Florida), and the usual assortment of psychic readings, mini spa days, and exploring local fairs and such.
Now mind you we aren’t a couple of spring chickens anymore (50+ and 50++) making some of these activities even funnier! We’ve learned that letting go, laughing, hanging out with no agenda, no deadline and no goal except to have fun spurs the imagination, allows creativity and lofty dreams to flow and generates new ideas, new inventions and new possibilities.
In fact, sis just called with a new product invention!
Playtime is a must. If you’re stuck and not making the changes you know you need to make you’re probably doing what I do…get lost my head…whereby nothing happens. I’m stubborn. I like being in my head. It’s comfy in there…but it doesn’t serve me or others all the time.
If I want to make a difference, stay on top of my game, serve my clients, grow myself and my business I have to plan some play. So plan some play!
If I’m with sis…well, it’s hard not to have fun. We’re just wired to do crazy things…like sailing in hurricanes. If you don’t have a sis call your pal and plan something silly.
Try it and let us know what you did. Leave a message so we can all play along!
