Ric interviews John Lee Dumas from Entrepreneurs on Fire (EOfire.com) on his computer gaming experience on Age of Empire and Red Alert.
John was so skilled that he became the top number 7 player in the world.
We also talk some about the danger of escapism, coping with life change and how important it is to not take yourself too seriously.
Do not think too much about what everyone else thinks. Instead think more about what matters to you, yourself.
Rules? Everything is feedback – Everything is your teacher. Embrace Reality. Game Devs dont always know their game better than you.
Likewise does not always an organisation know whats their number one revenue is. Analyse what you see and make up your own mind. Then take the initiative and lead.
Dont just trust the labels blindly. Take a small step today to become one of those that draws a map for others benefit, not one of those that follow maps others draw.
I know you generously want to share all you’ve looted, or happily will power level them thru that inferno level and that’s fine if you’re doing it to or with someone who play the Exp per hour game. But if you’re wanting to introduce someone to something new, you’ll be more strategic leaving them challenges they can conquer themselves. Otherwise they will most likely just feel like they’re in your shadow and eventually leave your game.
