Playing Up


In an effort to enrich my soul and feed my brain with new and improved knowledge I attempt to make a conscious effort to surround myself around people who know more than I.

I like to play up so I can learn more even if it means I’m the one in the bunch who knows the least.

I’d sooner get my ass kicked on the tennis court by a player who ran me ragged than to beat an opponent who could barely return my serve.

There’s no point in taking on a mean game of backgammon with a suitor who sucks. Where’s the challenge in that?

I can’t get better unless I play against the stronger players. The stronger players inspire me to work harder; to think harder; to push myself to the max.

This principle is universal. It applies across the board; be it a backgammon board or the Chairman of the Board.

It’s always better to play up than to dumb yourself down.

Don’t dumb yourself down. Don’t do that. Instead, always strive to play up.

It’s the only way to win.
