Life is really just a game.
It depends on what game you’re playing and what it looks like to win.
I came to a realization that the game I had signed up for, I was not going to win.
I was trying to be (See trying) a start-up entrepreneur from Vancouver who was going to be (see: going to be) a “success”.
It’s like setting yourself up to be a struggle rapper your whole life. (A day in the life of a struggle rapper)
Games are just made up.
The rules were created my someone and arbitrarily agreed to by the players.
So instead of worrying about where I was at before, and how I was doing on that “scoreboard”, I’m going to change the game.
Play a different, much bigger game.
One that’s going to require me to do different things, take different actions, and ultimately become a different person than the one I was being in my old game.
It’s like playing pickup basketball against people that you know you will probably win against, versus playing against NBA or high-level college players. You really would need to step your level up to be able to compete.
So what’s what I’m committing to.
To me, and to you.
Playing a big game, and making changes that are in line with the game I want to win.
I got up at 5:30 today, and doing various other things to level up my life.
And really, that’s what this blog is about.
It’s time to play the game.
