Once the game is over


An Italian Proverb says, "once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back into the same box". Likewise, in a chess game, as in other games, like soccer, someone has to win, someone has to lose. Checkmate! Goal! Stalemate. Draw.


Losing is no doubt very painful - be it in a sports game, on the chess board or in love. The pain is there but at varying degrees.

Good news is, while pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. We can choose to suffer or to be happy. Thank God! It's a lot better to bounce back than to become a sore loser.

Love hurts, just like life's growing pains - you crawl, you walk, you run, you fall, sometimes flat on your face. But you know what, you get up and you go at it again.

I believe everything that happens to us in life is part of a grander scheme of things. Makes us stronger and wiser...

I think I'll survive this heartbreak.

  • To solve any problem, there are three questions to ask yourself: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, whom could I ask?

    The real problem is usually two or three questions deep. If you want to go after someone's problem, be aware that most people aren't going to reveal what the real problem is after the first question.

    Neil Armstrong once said, "You only have to solve two problems when going to the moon: first, how to get there; and second, how to get back. The key is don't leave until you have solved both problems."

    Never attack a problem without also presenting a solution.

    The best place to solve a problem is on paper.

    Keep up the blog!
