Exciting announcement: I now have a column on Entrepreneur.com!
In my most recent article, 5 Lessons Video Games Taught Me About Success, I talk about how my favorite childhood outlet prepared me for adult life.
“Now that I run my own business, I barely have time to play games. But I have had a lot of time to reflect on the life lessons they taught me. In fact, I’m convinced that playing games taught me important lessons about how to succeed at business.”
I relate how the lessons I learned, such as embracing failure, taught me life-long habits.
“Repeated failure is built into the learning curve of any well-designed game. Overcoming failure is what makes games addictive in the first place. Yet, so many gamers forget this lesson as soon as they put down the controller. Failure is a crucial part of success in real life, too, and you have to learn to embrace it.”
