In chess, openings are crucial. Grandmasters, especially with the help of computers, have charted what the best possible moves are in various situations.
It’s easy to get stuck trying to memorize opening theory. The problem is, there are a mind-boggling amount of moves possible. According to some people, there are close to 200,000 possible positions after your second move!
You have to move away from theory and just play using your chess skills.
Similar situations happen whenever a new opportunity arrives at work. In theory, there are always new courses to take, skills to learn, experiences to gain. However, sometimes, you have to jump right in and say, I’m ready.
Thanks for caring!
