    WatchStack Report: Playficiency

    At the last @aigaasheville WatchStack with @brettamccall we watched the @simonegiertz @ted talk Why You Should Make Useless things. It brought up some interesting conversations around success, enthusiasm and the importance of playfulness in work. How the balance of play and hard work combine for greater happiness, success and the twin golden calves of capitalism: efficiency and productivity. How innovation and creative growth can best arise out of doing simply for the sake and joy of the doing. When the pressure of an attatchment to a specific measurable outcome gives way to play, we can achieve a state of "playficiency." As creatives and designers were uniquely suited to facilitate the tools and space to intentionally foster the failure that breeds success. Join is for the next one next Tuesday the 26th 5:30-6:30 pm EST. Link in bio ? #watchstackavl #hornsbycreative #community #inspiration #talk
