Do Better Work by Transforming It Into Play, Class by Charlie Hoehn
“I wasn't doing things because I wanted to do it; I was afraid of what would happen if I didn't.”
That’s how Charlie Hoehn felt for over a year. Tim Ferriss was paying him a large salary to do work most people envied… until Charlie decided he just couldn’t do it anymore.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur or working in a job, ask yourself a question:
Is this what you expected?
The promise is that your work should support your lifestyle. Work is supposed to be help you live on your terms, according to what’s important to you.
You imagined you’d be happier and more successful. Maybe you have attained success -- Money. Skills. Contacts. Maybe you haven’t yet. But one thing’s for sure:
And you don’t want to be grinding. When you get caught up in grinding, it’s consuming… and too often, you’re consumed with guilt about how you should be working even more. And no matter how hard you grind...
That’s how the “life is serious mentality” took the joy out of Charlie’s life. This mentality caused him to feel like work is slavery. Exercise becomes a chore. Food becomes guilt. Friendship an obligation. And love is a social construct.
Nobody talks about it, but the truth is you’re not alone. And it doesn’t have to be this way. Which is why Charlie is teaching this group class on how to make work into play.
“The most successful people are like little kids.
When you talk to them about work, they get, "I'M MAKING MY WORLD BETTER!!! :) :) :)
Gritting our teeth through drudgery is not how we’re built. It’s not what we’re meant to do. Good work does not necessitate a grueling grind.
All the things we love and pay for… They make life fun and beautiful. Art, sports, books, architecture, design, movies, stories… Their creators are just playing. They don’t make things because they are afraid of punishment if they don’t. They want to play and create and have a lot of fun.
Work felt like play. And money came naturally – because all of us just want more fun in our lives.
Charlie became popular by working with Ramit Sethi and Tim Ferriss. He documents how he did it in his book, Recession-Proof Graduate. Here’s the gist: Offer free work, learn from your mentor, and build in-demand skills.
He was successful because his heroes inspired him. He wanted to make cool stuff with people he thinks are cool and who are doing cool stuff.
He wanted to play.
And then he got lost somewhere along the way
He forgot that he was just playing. Like we used to play and have fun with friends… Until grown-ups told us to stop this foolishness. Because life is serious and work is serious. And we need to hang out with people who help us be serious.
You know you don’t have to work 20-hour days. That you don’t have to check email all the time. Your brain knows this, but somehow you don’t.
That’s how Charlie felt. Dead all the time with no idea what the hell is going on. Or how to stop it. This went on for over a year.
It was a long uphill battle, but he finally figured out how to crush the “life is serious” mentality.
And he wants to help you do the same.
The all-encompassing solution
Think about it.
If you create things you like, it will feel like play. You’ll enjoy working on it and experience fulfillment while you’re at it. If you choose your playmates, they’ll want to make your life better. And you’ll want to do the same for them. If you design your rules, they won’t feel like you’re in a regime you need to break out of.
You won’t get stuck doing things because of fear and obligation. You’ll play and keep getting better. You’ll want others to have fun playing with you too.
Play is how life is supposed to be and it’s how humans naturally thrive. But somewhere along the way, society beat it out of us.
You need to bring play back to your life.
