Does anyone fancy playing chess in the coming weeks?
My older sister sent me a beautiful chessboard as a Christmas gift a few years ago. I haven’t played chess for ages, but I still remember the moves and the vast ocean of possibilities chess offers.
It was my father who taught me how to play chess when I was a kid, and even though my childhood memories are somewhat blurry, the art of playing chess stayed with me until today.
To clarify, I have lots of space for improvement in this field. And I consider myself a beginner.
I’m basically a beginner in everything I do. Some call it: a “beginner mindset.”
I play chess these days, mostly against or by myself (it’s fun).
And playing chess taught me lots of entrepreneurial and life lessons. Here are four of my favorite ones:
1. Every move matters. -> or in my translation: You always have an impact and can choose the type of impact you want.
2. Action overrules any business plan. A business plan without action is just a piece of creative writing.
3. Chess and life give endless opportunities – it’s a privilege if you know how to navigate them.
4. Loosing is a mind concept -> it means growing and learning.
Talking about endless opportunities – I again got inspired in Davos about new technologies, and I’m excited to discover what this love from first sight will create in my life and business.
And I’m excited to announce a partnership between the Ministry of Creativity GmbH and hashtagweb3.
