Games that develop Strategic thinking & keep the mind in shape...

by 2 comments
Have any of you guys used games to help "exercise your mind", and if so, what games would you recommend taking up?

I know many of you will probably mention modern strategy based computer games, but for me it has to be the original: Chess

It's remarkable how, immediately when you play, you begin to see how your brain is working things out, thinking ahead, planning and dealing with unforeseen events, all crucial lessons we can take to our lives.

I remember for a period some years ago when I was playing regularly against friends or family I found that my clarity of thought was really improving in my business life.

On the flipside, when I decided to play the computer on my Mac some nights ago I was astonished at how I was just walking into bad moves without thinking them through - I had become rusty!

Since then I have played a quick game every night, just to keep my mind toned up, and intend to keep going with this practice.

Have any of you similar experience with this or other games?

    I like playing a quick spider solitaire during the breaks. Also, point-and-click adventures
    can be really challenging and make you think in terms of solving problems.

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.
