“Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play, it is free will.” – Jawaharlal Nehru
This is the basic definition of what you find in google when you ask what’s rummy “a card game, sometimes played with two packs, in which the players try to form sets and sequences of cards.”
Rummy can be viewed in different aspects.
- Playing with friends and family for fun.
- Playing to earn money.
These are 2 things that come into people minds when they think or hear about rummy.
But there is another aspect in which very few people think which it helps to improve focus, testing mental abilities and also helps in improving your decision making.
You might have a question !
How does it help in decision making?
Think of each card as an opportunity in your life. In games, you have lost some opportunities to get better opportunities and some you have to follow your instincts to grab it. Sometimes people grab their chance, but then they want to wait for some time. That’s when you lose the game, and some other person takes the win. This is things we face while making decisions in our life.
‘When Luck Joins the Game, Cleverness Scores Double’
Like all the games we know, even in rummy card games, luck matters greatly. However, you must understand that luck alone cannot make you win the game. Apart from luck, it would be best if you also had a fair share of shrewdness to decide your card moves. The right card in hand indeed brings you closer to victory. Yet, the game can only be won when you see beyond just your cards and guess what possibilities are there to complete all sequences. This rule applies in life too. Even with everything in your favour, you may lose in life if you do not grab the right opportunities and make the best of it.
