I received a terrible phone call from an old college friend last week. The news was devastating, and it kept me up all night. He only has a few months left to live, and he called to say goodbye. It broke my heart and made me take immediate inventory of my life. And then I thought about the plight of the average person living in 2018.┬áThe statistics tell the story: most people spend their lives playing not lose. They take the conservative path and make safe decisions. They live within their comfort zone and rarely venture beyond. And when the grim reaper comes calling, the number one deathbed regret is “not taking more chances.” Watch this short video (3 minutes) on critical thinking as it relates to playing to win, and I’ll look forward to hearing your comments.
