It’s An Example Of Going Back To The Basics

Yesterday and today my family and I are having a family reunion. My cousins and I played Super Smash Brothers for the Nintendo Game Cube. I rarely played the game and I stink. The only character I know how to play is Pikachu. When I played with my cousins, I was terrible. Really terrible :-<

When my cousins went back to the hotel, I practiced for two hours. I did the training mode, I re-read the instruction manual on basic movements and special movements for the Pikachu character. After the practice, I remembered many of the moves and basic strategies. Granted it’s not a guarantee I win every match; however, I have a much better fighting chance to win more matches and place first.

Granted also I played the two hours in the late hours playing a video game. Come on, don’t I have something better else to do. Yeah, I do; however, I rarely play the GameCube and I consider it an opportunity to play during the free time. And it reminds me that when you are in a jam, go back to the basics. Read some books, remember the successes, call people if needed, do something basic to remind you and/or to learn something new to get out of a jam—to solve the problem.


Resume? I don't need a resume. Here is my resume: Innovator. I'm available to innovate for hire.
