What could be one o the worst nightmares that a guy could everexperience?? You get into a boxing match with the missus andshe cleans your clock. Yes … you heard right!! Now mind youit was only on a V screen using our new video game system,but still it was pretty painul!! No not my body, just my ego.Now these games are not perect (obviously) but their ability totranslate your body movements and put it all on the V is truly remarkable.So ... hiding the embarrassment o my boxing deeat, we movedon to table tennis. Once upon a time I was a airly experiencedtable tennis player, but that experience ailed me as I wentdown to urther deeat and humiliation. But, with my “neversay die” personality, I went about practicing my table tenniswith renewed vigour. I moved up rom beginner to amateurto proessional and rom there demanded a rematch with themissus. Victory!!!!! Not even close, I won each game!!!Just as in lie, success usually takes a lot o practice. But successisn’t just doing the same things over and over again. o truly develop new skills you have to experiment and try new ideas.What happens when I do this and i I change this what happens??Effective practice isn’t so much about simply doing or playing, itis also about learning and adapting.For instance, one o the things that I have learned is to neverchallenge the missus to a game until I have achieved some reallevel o skill at it or even better, nd a sneaky way to win withoutskill. I am thinking that i I can convince Xbox to get a betterhandle on reality, the missus should be way too short to evergive me a head shot. Another thing I haven’t tried, is to see whatwould happen i I kick her real good. Against the rules, whoknows but could be worth a try.Alternatively, I could adopt a moremature attitude towards losing. Youknow, “It’s not whether you win or losebut how you play the game”. I coulddo that you know, but somehow it justdoesn’t seem as appealing as trying tokick her butt.
