People aren’t chess pieces

  • By Alan Knott-Craig
  • October 26, 2016



As your power grows, it’s easy to fall for the Chessboard Fallacy, ie: the world is like a chessboard and you are free to shape people and events as you wish.


The world doesn’t work that way. Everyone has their own dreams and goals. Every event is impacted by countless factors.


If you try to force the world to follow your system, you’ll fail.


Rather spend time and energy understanding the world’s system and align your goals with that system.


Go with the flow.


Don’t make people do things they don’t want to do.
