It is all fun and games until someone turn it into a business

Just look around, see how many people are actually doing things which as a kid you would just love to do all day and even night long. Playing the guitar. Playing games. Watching television. Playacting. Sketching. Drawing. Doodling. Writing. All those sports and creative things that you never knew can make people rich beyond compare?

I bet that guys who are now known as U2 will never guess them making and playing music when they were in school in Ireland can afford to build a futuristic looking building at their hometown. They sell sold out concert and can even give out millions. Their lead singer is even tauted as a spokeperson against poverty. And all they do is playing songs all day long....

 
I should have trained more...


Those Facebook guys, who took social networking to a different height? As much as people hate their way of changing the interface every other month, no one can deny their addictive nature and how important Facebook has been in connecting long lost friends. At least although you might not want them to be too involve in your life (like me and my school friends) at least I know who is still alive and what is going on. If not for Facebook, I wouldn't know the guy living at the other street of my neighbourhood is my junior at secondary school.

In sports, Tiger Wood, Ronaldo (either from Brazil or Spain) and Nadal, from different sports are just playing games all day long and I bet their mother will hold their tongue now rather than calling them home as they practice their game all day long.

So, someone did the unthinkable a few years ago as they turn games that kid plays into business. Of course there are pros and cons but at least people now know, all play does make Jack a rich boy...

Wouldn't it be a wonderful life to be able to do work that is considered play? Most of us would be happy for the rest of our lives if we could do that.

This would be the ideal. Doing what we love. I wonder if when they came up with the term "working for a living", it was implied that it would be something that we did not like...hehe
