oooh man… just play

Now listening to Gary Clark Jnr centimetres from my ear at top volume, I’ve forgotten what I was in such a hurry to type. About being motivated… parent stuff.. I remember quite young my parents asking me why I wasn’t receptive when Dad tried to teach me to swim. It was because something that was innately fun was no longer fun. We adults don’t often think about that when we are enthusiastically imparting our knowledge and experience. Kids want to learn, and the BEST way to learn is by playing… having fun, making mistakes with abandon and enjoying making them, and just learning. We need to integrate fun into learning. We were born to learn at play. And not just as kids, either. As adults too. When we are enjoying what we do, we do it so much better.
