Game of Skill

wednesdays with wayne Mar 29, 2023

If you learned to drive, you know that when you first approached the car as an early teen, it looked easy. And as you learned about speed and braking distance while building your proprioceptive capacity (you learned how big the car was so you could stay away from other cars and obstacles), you began integrating new skills.


It was fun. 


It was almost like a game. The more you learned, the more skills you had at your disposal. You “leveled up” your game and you became one with the car. You knew the sounds and vibrations. You knew the buttons and knobs.


You knew.


You knew because you learned. You deliberately put yourself in a position to learn and grow. Sometimes you failed along the way. And you kept going anyway.


When I was learning to drive, I ran over a gigantic rock in the roadway, something that had slid down from the hillside. I thought we had clearance. The undercarriage wasn’t so happy. Neither was my mom. And, I learned.


When I was traveling in a foreign country, I used the wrong words to ask for something I wanted. Beyond the puzzled looks, I was shooed away. It was embarrassing, and I learned.


Skill building, in itself, is a game. 

In fact, you might say that skill-building is, in itself, a game of skill. Because the more you focus on skill building, the better you get at it.


So here we are at the end of the first quarter of the year. How do you want to take on the rest of this year, next year, and the year after that? What skill will you be learning? What will you build for yourself and how will you lift those around you?


Skill building is a game of skill and as with any game of skill, you get better with practice.


Get in there. Learn. Mess up. Celebrate the wins along the way. Learn some more. Mess up some more. And celebrate some more.


Keep making your magic.
