Life Lessons from Chess & Rocket League

I enjoy playing chess and Rocket League on occasion. I have definitely learned about myself from both:

  • Patience – I often am impatient in Chess and make moves faster than necessary before considering all options. I am trying to learn to wait and really think about everything first. Same with Rocket League, instead of just chasing the ball around the map like a little dog after a rabbit I am trying to watch the ball come in and then make a plan for how to handle it.
  • Avoiding negative emotions – Anger especially can lead to poor decision making. I am trying to be careful about this in life and not to make decisions based on emotions.
