We used to sit around in circles and wait all recess long for someone to tap us on the head and say “goose”. It was a fun game when you got picked. Not so fun when you didn’t.

In many ways, it wasn’t any different from the political fight club that is Corporate America or the golden ticket that is social media fame — you wait around long enough and hope that fate will eventually show up, tap you on the head and say…


“your turn”

“you’re promoted”

“you’ve finally won”

It’s the same game that’s a whole lot of fun when you get picked — but not so fun when you don’t.

I don’t know about you, but I think I’m going to play another game.
