In a half-hearted effort to take a break from technology I sometimes find myself playing patience/solitaire on the (oops) phone.
Here’s the thing. Sometimes I have long strings of wins, but often it’ll turn into one lost game after another.
Now I’m not certain, but I wonder if these losing streaks are more often than not caused by simply not seeing cards that could have been piled on top of each another?
I suspect that the solution’s very often right in front of me, but I don’t see it, so just click to shuffle and play another game.
And this, I think, often happens in life generally. We have problems to solve but all too quickly give up, imagining that the answers are elsewhere when perhaps they’re actually slap bang in front of us.
Try the nearsighted view today for a change. You might be surprised.
