Someone prompted me to remember this little quote today:
A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play, his labour and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself he always seems to be doing both. Lawrence Pearsall Jacks; “Education Through Recreation” 1932
It evokes something of what I aspire to and sometimes experience. I originally found it in the book “How To Find Fulfilling Work” by Roman Krznaric. It’s a bloody good read and has some really interesting methods and exercises to help you work through the process of finding… well, the title says it.
Come to think of it, I might well need to read it again!
