Life lessons from Scrabble

 Scrabble like any contest or sport offers lots of life lessons:

  • The more you play, the better you get
  • You play better when you give the game 100% focus
  • When you doubt yourself or get stressed out, you don't play as well
  • There are many strategies for successful play
  • Pay attention to the opportunities that exist
  • Don't hold on to your valuables for too long--put them to use when you can
  • Don't squander your valuables, use them with intention
  • Overplay leads to less value--there's a just-right amount of play that's positive, and that quotient is different for everyone
  • Doing what you love relaxes you
  • When you do what you love, you meet people with similar mindsets, interests and that brings joy
  • Healthy competition is good for you
  • Have fun, don't take it too seriously
