I was playing Pacman in the breakroom for a while, and I realized that I had gotten better the long I played. So, I took a break and waited outside for a few minutes and started writing a few thoughts I had down: A Game of pacman is akin to living one's life: 1. Adapting to new obstacles simply becomes second nature. 2. Increasing reaction speed to an ever changing environment becomes key to self improvement. 3. Recognizing, learning, then predicting patterns forces the anticipating of smoother ways to achieve one's goals. 4. There is no such thing as failure, only the education that is provided from a miss direction of opportunity. 5. The scent of the next challenge constantly lures us towards the next level, the only choice is to progress ever onward or turn to stone with complacency.
