Musings, ponderings and various observations on the intersection of BJJ/Martial arts training and the living of life. I have no inclination toward either political correctness or correct spelling. This blog, such as it is, remains fundamentally an unfiltered gush of thought ... both raw and unpolished.
Problems are annoying - but Puzzles are fun ...
Let me repeat that; problems are annoying but puzzles are fun. And problems can be looked at in just this way - as puzzles. We all love games - or at least we used to when we were kids. We liked to solve puzzles, we loved to work things out - to peer inside and see how things worked. We poked the world to see what happened - stuff did happen; some good stuff and some bad stuff; but we all learned from the experience.
We are, in essence, problem-solvers. This is what BJJ is all about; it throws problems at us, each and every time we step onto the mat. It is challenging, sure; but we work stuff out. the more we solve problems, the more adept at problem solving we become.
We all start out on wobbly legs - then we work stuff out. Next time you see a problem … try thinking of it as a puzzle. After all, you are a puzzle-solver! JBW
