The Queen’s Gambit’s classical chorus

Sometimes, I wondered whether I would be able to ever master one skill or not. There were a push for being a generalist, but now that I have somehow found things that I enjoy doing, I wanted to do them more often, and I might end up not trying new things. That is one thing I fear, but then I think fear shall not be felt as it hindered growth and success.

Regardless, one thing that kept me thinking at night, is chess. I was not the best chess players in our class, and I don’t know how much being good at chess would help any others in anyway, but the mind sport has always intrigued me to try and to push my limits. Maybe lessons should be learned, I need a chess master to teach me chess.

That was what I learn in ski class. Though it was little, I felt that I would need a very good teacher to help advance my profession and knowledge. I would need to ask a lot of questions, and I would need to be able to make decisions accordingly. But first, a final destination in mind being envisioned would be great.

Watching the Queen’s Gambit, I was able to reflect on my relationship with chess. Though I have not finished the show yet, I wanted to take sometimes exploring different approaches to game theory and strategic thinking. Chess, like the following video has expressed, is a symbol of human’s freewill, in opposed to luck and chance. You have the total control of your pawns, and you somehow won by strategically play better than your opponents. The skills of pattern recognition and planning are important. It was not just about how you think but also how others think. The more you play, the easier it get for you to recognize a certain pattern, and therefore helps to proceed the game better in your favors.
