To be able to grasp a clear perspective of the things around us, it is sometimes a good idea to step back. By “stepping back” I refer to the idea of playing in a game of chess.

Consider that we are players in a game of chess. We are gripped by pressures of the clock, having to respond, time-bound, and with much consideration of the consequence of our every move. There would be instances where it becomes a necessity to step our of the game, stand up, and like the “on-lookers,” try to analyze the game from a different view. Then perhaps, we can play a good game of life. They say “it’s not all about winning, but how you play the game.” We may not end up victorious, but we would have played well.
