Let's Play The Dominoes Game
Although the word Dominoes brings to your mind a yummy mouthwatering pizza, there is also a game called dominoes.
Dominoes is a game for 2 to 4 players, played with a set of specially marked tiles like in the picture above. Each domino is a rectangular tile with a line dividing its face into two square ends.
You see, dominoes aren't pieces of plastic that you randomly arrange and then knock one and the rest fall, and we have a great time watching this happen. Here are some
Dominoes Game Rules :
# You set up your own dominoes; it's an individual game.
# You can move your dominoes; they are not set in stone.
# Each and every domino matters; it's not just the final one.
# It's a spiralling process of one thing leading to another.
# A positive spiral of course helps knock down the final domino.
# The last domino may not fall; yet you learn from the process.
How then do dominoes relate to life and what lessons can we learn from them?
If you pick one right thing to do that cues another accomplishment, you feel inspired to do something more that gets you to an even better space.
Small, simple things like waking up on time, packing your bag, making it to the bus stop, reaching class comfortably, submitting your homework, focusing on the subject, answering questions, having the teacher or professor appreciate you, being selected hence for the competitive exam, and getting a positive appraisal for being a diligent student.
But there are also those days you feel the sun rose from the west.
The day the alarm didn't ring and you woke late. Barely packed your bag right, missed the bus and hence had to make alternate travel arrangements; had the teacher glare at you and that made you nervous so you fumbled at the question and got a poor performance grading.
One bad thing happened, thus assuring that the next event is even worse and the day appears to be the worst ever.
If you re-look at the Dominoes Game Rules, you can re-align your thinking and change the sequence of events.
