This really works!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Screw Work, Let's Play: How to Do What You Love and Get Paid for it (Paperback)
I bought this book after some resistance less than a month ago. I also bought some of those little sticky tabs as I had a suspicion there would be things I'd like to return to. I bought a "play journal" for me to write notes in and complete the exercises and from the very first exercise realised that the things I love doing have very little to do with how I'm earning a living.
John warns against people throwing their jobs in until such a time as they have new income streams in place. The book is structured in such a way that you only need to do about 10-20 minutes a day on your play project to elicit a big change in your life.
The more I read the more sense it all made. When you're doing something you love doing it's not work, it's play! Imagine spending every day playing and being paid for it. I'm not talking about spending your life in the pub drinking G&T, I'm talking about all those hobbies or projects you've had mulling around in your mind.
It made so much sense to me that I signed up for the "Screw Work, Let's Play 30 Day Challenge". We are about half way through and I have a workshop booked and a provisional booking for teaching in a local school. My fun bones have been well and truly tickled and I can't wait for each new day.
There are no guarantees in life. I vote for playing.
