While Emily Blunt may have been positively enchanting portraying everyone’s favourite nanny on the big screen last year, who can forget Julie Andrews’ classic words from the 1964 original:
“In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and – SNAP – the job’s a game!”
In that very short sentence, Mary Poppins was able to convey a powerful message of work engagement that as is typical with rebellious children, would go on to be ignored for decades to come. In fact, only now is the true hidden wisdom behind those words being rediscovered today.
This is thanks to gamification.
