“Make a thing, and figure out why afterwards. The idea of play in human culture has always been how we practice new ways of being interdependent with each other.
Learning skills and playing with one another is a critical social tool.
Allow people to imagine they are not themselves so they play a role and can learn something.” — Edwin Schlossberg
- Playing not despite, but in response to. Learning through play. Doing our best work through play.
- Allowing each other to be amateurs. Encouraging each other to be ourselves. Helping each other to get to the special place.
- Having fun. Learning how not to second guess ourselves for caring too much.
- Finding out why it’s important later.
- If you’re doing a thing, fall into it.
- Do something for no reason. Follow the tug.
- It’s not always about what you’re making, but who you become while you’re making.
