Work and play

There are lots of different ways for work and play to fit together, here are three.

The first is the delayed gratification model, where all the play comes when you retire, where the aim of the game is to get to that point as quickly as possible.

The second is living for the weekend. Work hard and play harder.

The third is the one I’d like to shoot for, where play and work weave together, feeding each other in a sustaining practice. This is the one model where life isn’t deferred.
