Do you want to reach your full potential? To do so, you need to make the most of every opportunity. The fact is, you have many opportunities in life. In fact, you have them daily. The question is whether you make the most of them or not.
When your life is in a mess, what is the key to turning it around? I thought about it when I read the story of Jon Shafer. Shafer is the lead designer of Civilization V, a video game that was released in 2010. The game was a huge success. But after the game was released, he decided to quit and start his own company. He started working on a game called At the Gates.
I recently read a story in Blood, Sweat, and Pixels about the making of Stardew Valley. Stardew Valley is a popular video game that was released in 2016. What’s remarkable about the game is that it was developed by just one person. Eric Barone did the programming, arts, and sound by himself. It took him four and a half years to finish the game.
I recently read the book summary of Big Mistakes by Michael Batnick. The book has an interesting subtitle: The Best Investors and Their Worst Investments. Interesting combination, isn’t it? It contains story after story of how very smart people made bad decisions in investing.
