Are you playing a game you want to win?

If you win at whatever game you're playing right now, would you be happy?

This is such an amazing question to ask yourself. The best thing about it is that it can apply to so many contexts.

For me, I think about it in terms of content creation and the persona I'm trying to create for myself online and relates to [[Why I'm Learning how to code and not how to build an audience]]. I want to win the game by building an amazing product, creating an inspiring video, or writing a ground-breaking article.

Is that going to take time? Yes. Will other people succeed faster than me? Yes.

But I want to win the game that I want want to play. In other words, I don't want to win a game I never wanted to play in the first place.
