What I Learned from Playing Chess

I started playing chess when I was 16, so, it's been about five years now.

In those 5 years, I've learned quite a bit about game strategies, the best techniques, and how to take advantage of the board.

While I've learned more about how to play the game, I also feel like it has taught me a bit about life as well.

So, to keep this week's blog post short, here are the three life lessons I learned from playing chess.

  1. Think ahead. You can't win without being prepared.

  2. Make a move. You hurt yourself more by choosing not to go for it.

  3. Don't dwell on the past. You can't control what's happened, only how you react to it.

The next time you find yourself playing a game, whether it be chess or something else, take a second to think a bit deeper about what you can learn from it. It's a pretty fun experience!

Till next week, thank's for reading!
