Life is But a Game

* Transcription

Thank God it’s Monday!™ Life is but a game. You can’t win. You certainly can’t lose. And, it’s the only game you have. But you are constantly reminded that the other players exist—the boss, the family, the neighbor, the church… and they are all telling you what they think is best for you.

At the end of the day, you make your own decisions. It’s your game. And the points you rack up in your lifetime are on you.

But often, especially in the workplace, you are not the only authority in the decision making process. You must find a way to get things done, despite not being in charge.

Make your vision clear to those whose ideas conflict with your own. If your vision is truly more effective, show them why. Chances are, they will appreciate your effort toward identifying an area of growth and allow you to move forward. Play on. Enjoy the game.

Have a great Monday!
