What if life is just a great big board game - there are no dice, we just get to choose, every day, whether we move one square forward or we stay where we are. Not moving forward today is fine - the game will just take a bit longer to play, but eventually we’ll get to all of the bonus squares at the end.
But what if we misunderstood the rules ?
What if every day we don’t move forward, we have to move one square backwards instead ?
If those were the rules, would it change how you play the game….?
