"Life is a kind of Chess, in which we have often points to gain, and competitors or adversaries to contend with.” ~Benjamin Franklin

On this in-between-seasons Habits2Goals episode, we explore the fascinating Mind Bullet topic of chess. Chess is thousands of years old and encompasses infinite possibilities, confounding even the grand masters. Its strategies and complexities have dynamic applications to real life. 

When you play the game, whether against a person or a computer, your "goal" is clear: Get the king. On the way to your goal there will be many battles. Some pieces will be strategically sacrificed to protect another piece.

The entire way, you're forced to look at things logically from your end goal. 

Chess has many benefits, from raising confidence and IQ in children to enhancing your ability to focus and recollect. Chess develops your skills of foresight and planning; you see the layers you must wade through to get to the end goal. 

Chess is a phenomenal tool for strategic thinking and planning, utilizing foresight and protecting yourself and your assets.

But perhaps the greatest gift of chess is making you aware of your situation. You are at once offensive and defensive. You must constantly assess where you are being threatened. Which piece is exposed? Can it be sacrificed? Where am I vulnerable? In life and goal achievement, there's no greater question.

Listen in for a fascinating discussion of chess as a metaphor for the goal-achievement process, illustrating the strategic thinking, planning, defensive posturing and awareness you'll need on your own goal achievement journey. 

Enjoy the episode!
