In the global pandemic, and everything else going on in the world today, there is every reason to be unhappy. Who decided that we grownups have to act our age and put playtime behind us? There are many benefits of playing like a kid, even through hard times--maybe especially in difficult times. So, when is the last time you played like a kid?

Jeff Harry shows individuals and companies how to tap into their true selves to feel their happiest and most fulfilled--all by playing. Jeff has worked with Google, Microsoft, Southwest Airlines, Adobe, the NFL, Amazon, and Facebook, helping their staff infuse more play into the day-to-day.

Show Highlights:

  • How Jeff is intensely passionate about utilizing play to help people figure out who they are and how happy and joyful they were as kids
  • How Jeff brings his passion to everything he does and loves to “nerd out” about any topic--along with his “fancy” bowtie that says he’s just there to have fun
  • How Jeff didn’t always fit into his father’s box of “a time and a place for everything”
  • Cultural factors that affected Jeff growing up as the child of first-generation immigrants include how he had to learn not to take things seriously and make play his armor
  • How adults try to follow the correct way of living that ends up not being correct for them
  • Why Jeff never felt like being “more” was a bad thing, and he actually regrets not being enough of himself because of fear and playing it safe
  • How we allow our inner critic to control us and why we need to address it head-on
  • How the flaws in our educational system tamp down and destroy genius in the classroom
  • How Jeff uses play as a superpower to attack evil, disconnection, and shame
  • How Jeff had to go through his own bullshit and identify his limiting beliefs
  • Why Jeff doesn’t take things too seriously, practices being present in the moment, and uses his “play” lens to figure things out
  • How Jeff helps others “come alive” and take a leap of faith and curiosity to reconnect with their “kidself”
  • Final words from Jeff: “You’re alive for a reason. You have a variety of superpowers, and when you liberate yourself, you help others liberate themselves.”
