The Opposite of Play is not work…

By Eileen McDargh - Monday, August 12, 2019

In fact, according to Stuart Brown, M.D., the opposite of play is depression!  As founder on the National Institute for Play, Brown has spent his career conducting thousands of “play histories” of humans from all walks of life: from Nobel prize winners and CEOs to serial murderers.  (In the latter case, what the murderers had in common: they never played as children!)

Lessons from the Stars

By Eileen McDargh - Monday, August 05, 2019

One summer, we spent nine days of backpacking in the Pioneer Basin region of the Southern California High Sierras. The 12,000 foot Mono Pass assured us that we were well tucked behind granite peaks and away from the ambient light of the LA Basin.

I tried, without luck, to photograph the millions of stars, the twirling Milky Way Galaxy and the split seconds of shooting stars the zapped across the night.

Then the moon rose, starting as a sliver and ending up just short of full. With its emergence, the array of stars that so mesmerized me became indistinct and faded from view. It is the moon and its brilliance that seemed to occupy the night. In fact, throughout history, the moon gets far more popular attention than any other object in the sky.

Isn’t that so true in life: The brighter-than-all sales superstar, the blockbuster drug, the number one athlete, the great rainmaker, and on it goes. The light from these individuals and products truly overshadow the rest. Attention and praise are heaped on them.

In doing so, a leader can miss the incredible artistry of a lesser “star”. In some cases, these now over-shadowed people paved the way for the individual’s singular achievement. The researcher toiling at the bench might not find a blockbuster drug but his discoveries could add much to collective wisdom and future achievements.

Don’t let the ultra bright person or thing obscure the complexity, beauty, and potential of others. You can't create a resilient organization with only the moon.
