Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #138 — The Power of Play

A couple of decades ago, the father of my then business partner gave us some sage advice: “when a person shows their true colors, pay attention!” That invaluable lesson was a godsend then … and I have a new awareness of it now. A new arena. Some new nuance.

Of the myriad ways to explore the essence of another person, my favorite is play!

“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”
— Plato

Conversation, for the most part, is a conscious effort ripe with intention and planning and even a performative edge. Play, on the other hand, tends toward the spontaneous, the unconscious, the fluid. Play reveals the inner child, the essence, the heart.

Relationships are deepened and strengthened through play. When play is present, so is authenticity.

How’s your relationship with play?
