Episode 37: Play vs. Passion
“Don’t confuse fun and passion because they rarely exist in the same experience. Fun and passion are not equal, nor synonymous. What you do for fun is not always what you do out of passion or for passion.” – Helen Ngo
“What do you do for fun?”
This simple question was asked of me by one of my interviewees in a previous episode. And it’s been throwing me for a loop ever since.
I fill my life with lots of activity: running, lifting weights, hanging out with my dog, spending time with family and friends. But all of these things are still connected with some sense of responsibility or obligation. Either to others or to myself.
But play… play is freeing. It’s active meditation, something that clears your head of all other thoughts, allowing you to be fully present in the moment.
In this episode, I explore what play really is, how it’s different from passion, and why you should make time for it.
