This week’s goal is to think about your relationship with life and the lessons you have learned or are learning. No matter the game you chose to play, it is not enough to just know the rules, you must understand the rules of that game and your opponent.
Chess players know that strategy is key. And if one wrong move is made they can be “checked” by their opponent. Texas Hold’em poker players know that their opponent may be bluffing, but it might come down to the last card. Even in Chutes and Ladders, you are moving up the ladder and the next spin, you are back down the chute.
If you are playing the “Game of Life” . . . you are expected to go to school and graduate. Then you are to marry, raise a family, pay for school, pay bills, and wait for paydays. Even if all you want to do is play Solitaire, you might get frustrated because most of the time it is impossible to solve and takes patience.
No matter the game, remember there is always an objective!
Something that one’s efforts or actions are intended to attain or accomplish while playing. Which is the purpose of life to feel good about yourself after the game . . . knowing that you did not lie, cheat, nor intentionally injure anyone else just to win. And that you played the best game that you could possibly play!
