    how you do a math problem without failing So basically they don t let you experience failure Failure is seen as a bad thing not as a learning experience And even when you get to the professional world things like architecture engineering industrial design they teach you how to do it the right way Where it used to be you would build five bad buildings and they d fall down and you d learn yourself that was more the apprenticeship craftsmanship model You d build 20 bad chairs but eventually learn how to build a good one because you would learn the failure states yourself inherently you d experience them directly Whereas when you go to engineering school they teach you how not to fail so you re never directly experiencing those failures It limits your intuitions Whereas a kid playing a game the first thing they do is they ll sit there and play five or six times and learn from that and they learn at a very core level in a very different way They ve actually explored the whole possibility space It s not that they ve been told don t go there because you ll fail and so they never go there and never experience it directly on their own They re encouraged to do that all on their own in fact they re directly building that possibility map This entry was posted in Education Game Dev Philosophy Bookmark the permalink New Job America s Imperial Overstretch Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Comment Name Email Website Search for Categories Acting 1 Articles 6 Asides 7 Business 3 Design 10 Dreams 1 Education 2 Events 5 Game 8 Game Dev 30 Life 11 Mac 1 Miscellaneous

  • On Place and Belonging | Thomas Grové's Blog
    to On Place and Belonging disco says July 6 2014 at 6 48 pm I won t suggest that this type of inner peace is in any way not a wonderful thing to aspire to but I have grown to feel ever more preferential to being in places of my choosing Life is too short to be somewhere that isn t right for you It s not that I grow happier with where I am I am always becoming more aware of the flaws of a place over time I do though have a growing perspective to draw from in comparing places Each time I go back to the US I find it more foreign more disturbing to me at fundamental levels The overall experience is very very sad for me Still there are pockets of things I like certainly friends and family will always be why I return I recognize and appreciate the few who ALREADY embody the good natured manner which I ve come to expect who smile and are friendly even though they re working the early shift at the gas station I m also more aware of the ways I AM LIKE those who act in ways which make me cringe Those who s independence trumps the greater good who cant keep their thoughts to themselves Perhaps a reason to return is for that perspective alone lion says July 18 2014 at 11 45 am I guess it is similar to that adage of happiness comes from appreciating what you have versus getting what you want That being said I don t have any plan to return to the USA to live in the foreseeable future as I agree that it feels really bizarre now All things being equal if you can choose to be in

    or teachers is a bad thing but I do think it can make you feel like a yoga idiot Different teachers have different aspects that they focus on they have different asanas poses that they practice and different pose sequences I had a class today where we did some poses that I ve never done before so obviously I wasn t good at that pose But triangle pose Bring it Conditioning There are sports where technique and muscle memory are not enough for proficiency Taking 2 4 weeks off a sport like rock climbing or yoga to nurse an injury or because life gets in the way will significantly reduce your strength and endurance It could take weeks to get back to the level you were at before taking a break Summary Getting a new teacher practicing infrequently or returning from a break can shake your confidence in an activity Don t give up It is hard to be good at some things without doing them frequently and recently Bear with the embarrassment for a few weeks and get back to a level where you feel less like an idiot and more like a practitioner Also try not to let your preconception of the right way to do something get in the way of the opportunity to learn from a teacher who has a different emphases or style than what you re familiar with This entry was posted in Life Shugyo Bookmark the permalink Four Key Traits for Designers What s The Point of Zen Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Comment Name Email Website Search for Categories Acting 1 Articles 6 Asides 7 Business 3 Design 10 Dreams 1 Education 2 Events 5 Game 8 Game Dev 30 Life

    Omori Sogen Fudochi Shimmyo Roku by Takuan Soho translated by Tenshin Tanouye Zen Budo by Omori Sogen translated by Tenshin Tanouye Tao of Jeet Kune Do by Bruce Lee Crucial Conversations given to me by my friend Marco to help me with my new management job Being and Ambiguity by Brook Ziporyn Real Time Cameras by Haigh Hutchinson A few Haruki Murakami books leant to me by my friend Marco which I hadn t read before leaving I would have brought a few Edward Tufte books and pamphlets that I was borrowing from David Sirlin but fortunately he left his hermit cave of game design to attend my farewell party CDs DVDs Vinyl I sold all of my DVD s to Amoeba Records with the exception of my Ghibli collection I was happy they took them all but I felt a bit raped by the price they gave me This event left such an unpleasant aftertaste that I resolved to figure out Fulfillment by Amazon If I had to do it over 100 of my collection would have been packed up and shipped off to Amazon Vinyl ended up in the capable hands of Dave Siska as I ran out of time to deal with anyone on Craigslist anymore Electronics and Baby Gear Ebay and Craigslist I need to write a post dedicated to how sub optimal selling things for less than 1000 on Craigslist is Ebay is the way to go if you have time which I did not A lot of my stuff went into storage or was given away to friends Some of my more sentimental gear did find new homes with paying customers but it was a slow trickel and responding to low ball emails or requests for additional pictures of a 5 item was a real distraction from the gargantuan task of packing Game Consoles and Games reference quality games took up half a large suitcase The rest were sent to Fulfillment by Amazon I did not ship any non portable consoles since it turns out that Vietnam uses 240V electricity and all of my systems were only rated for 120v and power transformers seem unecological to me Attempts to sell my like new consoles on Craigslist was a complete disaster and they all ended up in storage much to my chagrin I will need to buy locally Cloths we brought a ton to Goodwill and visited a few consignment stores to sell our nicer items 95 of which was rejected If you have the time it is worth brining your nicer items to more than one place since the buyers do have different tastes The lesson learned is that if you want to sell cloths they need to either be 6 months old or 30 years old All in all it wasn t worth the time it took for us Sentimental Items went into storage Kitchen Items most went into storage but we did bring our three most used pots and our three most
