Thesis and Antithesis

All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Video Games

1. Look both ways before you go. This may seem an obvious point but how many of us have played with that one gung-ho gamer who loves to rush in, guns blazing, just to wind up dead three seconds later? This is a lesson that's just as applicable in real life. Crossing the street for example, or entering a conference room before a meeting - case it out first to pick out the best place to sit, next to that cutie from accounting. Or when the crowded train pulls up to the platform, already be scoping out the least impacted area so you can grab the seat. Then just focus, and GO.
