And since you’re reading this, so did you.
One of my favorite things about working for the school district is interacting with the students. I think it keeps me young.
Last weekend we took a trip to Denison for BEST Robotics. On the way over there, one of the students said he had just “lost the game”.
Here’s how the game was explained to me:
- You’re always playing the game.
- As long as you aren’t thinking about the game, you’re winning.
- As soon as the think about the game, you lose.
When you lose, you should announce to everyone around you that you just lost the game. This causes them to lose as well.
It’s sort of a zen thing. Only by forgetting that you’re playing can you truly win.
