Hey world it’s me JKerr,
The NHL and NBA playoffs are underway.
In the spirit of playoff season, today is about competition — how to handle competitive situations to be exact.
Rule #25: It’s OK to be competitive.
A little competition can be a good thing.
I’m not saying you should get angry and take competitions super seriously, but it’s OK to want to win.
There are things that you’re good at. There are things that she’s good at. Do both of those things.
There are also things that you will both be good at, and the friendly competition will bring out the best in both of you.
It’s OK to want to win. She won’t get mad at you for trying.
If you’re playing a video game that she’s never played before it’s nice to let her stay close, but once she get’s good enough you don’t have to hold back.
For example, we were playing WWE 2K14 the other day — don’t judge, it’s super fun — and she beat me. So then the next time, I beat her. Neither of us said anything, but we were both definitely trying to win.
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to win, just don’t be mean about it. And if she beats you don’t be a sore loser. Just bring out the best in each other.
With the school year wrapping up, the blog is coming to an end. This will be the last post for the summer. We’ll see what happens next year as to whether or not it continues.
I want to say thank you to everyone who has read these posts. Whether you’ve read them all, or this is the first one, thank you.
I means a lot that you take time out of your day to read what I write. I truly appreciate it.
With that in mind,
Make her smile 🙂
