Playing at Work
My imagination has taken hold of me and I’m starting to see a future, planning and hoping for something grander. I keep trying to move it forward, but the todays keep have their way in front of it. I don’t want to miss living in this moment, but I’m looking at a window of opportunity. I don’t want to miss it more.
So I slip a minute of future work in, and then I do what I supposed to. And while I’m working on what I need to, I think a thought about what I want to. In between the got to get dones, I imagine what I’m going to be doing. And after I finish the have to have this, I take a second for what if I tweaked the idea this way. Even the work I used to hate is starting to feel more like a game.
It’s funny how this whole thing feels like reading late at night under the blanket with a flashlight.
I should have started playing at work again, a very long time ago.
