I have never been one to do what’s popular. Tv shows, sports, games, if it’s the ‘in thing’ I likely am not into it at all. I’ve pretty much always marched to my own drummer and sometimes my own drum line!
There is this app/game named Flow. I don’t know how popular this game is but it’s a simple game of connecting colored dots. There are different sized puzzles. I play it when waiting in line or play it at work while I’m on the phone sometimes. I don’t work in a phone center but I spend a lot of time on the phone with clients and I answer a lot of same types of questions so sometimes I just need to keep my brain busy.
You can look for meaning in just about everything. I wrote another blog post about life lessons from painting. So now I wanted to share life lessons I have been reminded of from playing the game Flow.
#1 Getting from point A to point B is not typically a straight line. Wouldn’t life be boring if we did things that went easy and in a straight line?
#2 There is more than one way to get a job done. I may do something differently than someone else, doesn’t make either way wrong.
#3 Getting help from others who have already been there is totally a good thing. Asking for help is a great thing. No need to reinvent the wheel when you don’t have to.
#4 You can always work more than one line at a time and sometimes it shows you the next path. Working multiple things helps put things into place.
#5 Sometimes if you are so off track, you can start over. You can. It’s ok to do that!!!
So there you have it. Life is not a straight line, there more than one way to get ‘er done, ask for help, new paths are revealed and you can absolutely start over!
Thanks Flow for the simple reminders.
