E85 - Deep play and work-life experiments
We’ve gone from work-life balance to work-life blending. What happens when that blending turns to work-life bleeding? Have we blurred the lines so much that we never get a break? Can we really live the dream of working in holiday locations? My insights on how to best run work-life experiments, and the incredible value of Deep Play.
The big realisation when it comes to work-life experiments: it’s not a holiday. And what to do about that.
What’s at the intersections of deep work, deep rest, and deep play that we can apply to all aspects of our life and work.
My specific routines to manage transitions between work-life segments.
Cal Newport’s book, Deep Work, is a great handbook for how we can do the work that matters, better. It’s all about creating focused time to do the thinking and reflecting and creating we need to move our work forward in transformational ways.
Arianna Huffington’s book, Thrive, marked a global wake-up call about overworking leading to work dominance at the expense of our health. Her book is a call to arms against self-sacrifice for the sake of work. Plenty of self management and relaxation tools in the book too.
