My life is like chess. In a way I think many people’s lives are like this. For me (and many others, I am sure) in life I am always thinking about what to do and how it will affect my position. Sometimes I blunder and make a mistake. Like doing something bad thing and getting in trouble. Other times I do something good and getting ahead in the game. The only problem I can see with this analogy or metaphor is that I don’t think in life that I am “playing against” anyone but myself.
I agree a life is a lot like chess but I personally think that you are playing against someone which would be the rest of the world, since those who do the best rise to the top. Just my opinion though. Otherwise nice blog post!
