“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”
But that presumes that work and play are two different things.
Fine – there are moments every day, often several, where I need to do something that is not overly exciting. Sometimes that is work related. However, sometimes it is related to other things – for examples, some times being hungry is just super inconvenient because I am in a zone and just really want to continue and get things done – lots and fast!
I know that the saying “do what you love, and you won’t have to work a day in your life” is a far-too-often used cliche, but cliches turned into that for a reason and there is definitely a core of truth to it.
It’s just business. After all, it is a game, isn’t it? I realized as I was typing out another blog post that I really don’t see that big of a difference between work and play.
Except when it comes to Roller Derby. That’s all play 😉
Addition, upon rereading a few days later. As being a roller derby player requires a certain number of hours of working for the organization every month in addition to selecting and participating in a committee to put in work with – not even Roller Derby is all play. Which just further proves my point?
