I came across this incredible poem by the Pulitzer Prize winning American author James A. Michener and wanted to share it. I feel everyone should strive for playful excellence and I hope it serves as a good reminder.
The master in the art of living
draws no sharp distinction between
his labor and his leisure,
his mind and his body,
his work and his play,
his education and his recreation.
He hardly knows which.
He simply pursues his vision of excellence
through whatever he is doing
and leaves others to determine
whether his is working or playing.
To himself, he is always doing both.
