These Playful Weekly Reminders Can Help You Be More Successful

Play, relax and innovate

To do intelligent things, create, innovate and solve problems it is important to do silly things and play. Play might be seen as the opposite of work, but research suggest that play can actually be a very important part of work and people’s creativity.

Any activity can become play with a playful state of mind. When done playfully, an usually non-playful activity such as going through emails becomes play, while a game of soccer can feel like the opposite of play when taken too seriously.

If people never did silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done.
– Wittgenstein

According to Sigmund Freud, play is the source of creativity. Nothing lights up the brain like when we are playing, so it is important to not just play occasionally, but instead make our whole life full of different types of play.

There are several other things that can increase your creativity, problem solving skills and innovation. In addition to playing, you can simply practice thinking in a different way as well as relax.
