What’s the win state?

Mr. Chimero posted some brief, but insightful, thoughts about the unofficial slogan of the year, winning. I recommend you take a few minutes and go read his thoughts before continuing on with mine. We all having different opinions based on our background, beliefs and biases but I’m of the opinion that winning only means one thing to all of us. What sets us apart though is how we react to winning, or not winning for that matter.

A lot of us probably feel like we aren’t really winning at anything. We go through the motions more than we make motions of our own. But from where I’m sitting there seems to be a change on the horizon. A new generation is about to wake up to the fact that there is more to winning than a 9 to 5 and a 401k. I’m not talking about the dreamers of pop-stardum, but those who have been working late nights and weekends with a burning passion.

But even when we start to make motions of our own, is that really winning? I think winning is overrated. I just want to play the game and have a ton of fun doing it. Maybe that’s just my state of win though.
