Luck Matters

Mine Sweeper

I enjoy playing mine sweeper whenever I have some free time, even having recorded 110 seconds at the expert level (whose typical records are in the 130-140 range). Playing this game, you can learn one lesson: Luck matters. Even when one locates all the mines except one and faces the situation to choose between the last two boxes, one can slip at the last step, guessing the wrong one. The result is simple: one may fail to complete the game. Sadly, the same applies to our daily lives. Luck matters. But remember, taking a shot, even when it seems impossible, also matters. Even if one tries hard, one can be unlucky and meet with a failure. But if one does not try in the first place, one already failed in that task without even trying. Most college admission results have come out, and some may have been disappointing. Now it is time to get over them, saying that they were only bad lucks. At least, we were brave to take those challenges under uncertainty and won’t regret of not having attempted.
