On Being Silly

If people never did silly things nothing intelligent would ever get done. Ludwig Wittgenstein, Austrian-British philosopher

Sometimes it feels good to do something silly or at least appreciate someone else’s silliness. I took this photo several months ago in Goodland, Florida whose motto is, “We are a drinking village with a fishing problem.” They also have a Mullet Festival featuring the Buzzard Lope Queen. They love silliness.

Being silly isn’t particularly in my nature but I do appreciate a good laugh. I like Ludwig’s opinion that silliness leads to intelligent action. Silliness keeps our brain fresh, our creativity alive, our funny bone front and center. I’m looking for an opportunity to be silly. Any suggestions?

Affirmation: I can be silly.

Coaching questions: What’s something silly you’re done recently? How did it feel? What’s next?
