- Which pathway represents life today?
Which pathway looks more playful?
Which pathway looks more alive?
Life is messy, and it’s getting messier. Global awareness, civil rights and a liberated mindset have created greater options and desire. With choice comes messiness in the form of detours, turns and twists, unexpected encounters, destinations, and challenges. We see more possibility, innovate, explore, while challenging linear convention.
Evolution is a movement from the left to right pathway: From defaulting to what is expected, to creating the unexpected.
Play is training for a new, messy world.
By becoming playful and supporting playful systems of learning and leading, we adapt to the changing times and support tomorrow’s generation to live healthy, happy and successful lives.
Play is the bright light that shines the way of our future.
