Last week I facilitated a couple workshops in Milwaukee at Discovery World at Pier Wisconsin. I spent the time on the plane on the way out revising and refining what I was going to be talking about.
I must have seemed like I was enjoying the process because at one point, as I was scribbling down notes on a printed out outline, the man in the seat next to me asked, "Is that for work or play?"
It was one of those times that really drives home how amazing it is to get to do something for a living that comes from the core of who I am. I looked at him blankly as my brain dealt with the dilemma of figuring out which it was.
Finally, I laughed at my reaction and said, "I guess it's both."
Sure, it was work, but it really felt like play. It felt even more like play when I actually engaged with the people in the workshops. It always amazes me how alive that makes me feel.
So here's a question for you. What would a career look like for you that would make it hard to decide whether it was actually work or play?
