76/365 – ” What would happen if you pursued less productivity? ”
Today, my co-founder and I went to a contact improv jam together for the first time.
Rather than end our dance session early to hold a little pre-week pow-wow, we decided to experiment by having our little meeting while dancing – asking each other: What were our most pressing deadlines? Which projects were we most excited to tackle? How did we want to start our Monday?
The meeting wasn’t particularly efficient – we often lost our train of thought and had unconventionally long pauses as we repositioned ourselves – but the brainstorming also came with more joy, laughter, and presence.
Introducing an element of play into a serious routine was wonderfully refreshing in a way that more productivity and efficiency could have never achieved.
