Now, having played with him, my brother, my Dad, my co-workers, and more, it’s a game that is just as it is reflected in the book: a beautiful game meant to win in the right way, not the easiest or the quickest : Martin Cahill.

More than 2 years later, I still haven’t played games. I decided to quit games by sharing my story with you, as Cam shared his. Thank you, Cam. Fifteen years later I see myself out of the world of games. As I said, I’m the ‘all or nothing’ person, dedicating my time and my life in goals that matter for the better of people.

It's always about people; it's always about ego. It's always about desperation. It's quite existential. You know, 'Am I leading a good life?'

#1 Getting asked the question. What should you say when you get asked, what you do for fun. Pretty simple I just start speaking without trying. I don’t take the question as some kind of test. It’s not a big deal. I don’t need to explain and defend what I’m. Life is a challenge, meet it.

Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is too precious, do not destroy it.

Great games are fun, and so life should be. I’m sure you don’t want to trudge and slog your way through an ordinary life, so don’t.

Choose a life full of adventure and challenges. Maybe that means choosing a different game than the one your playing, the game .
