What do you do when the passion is gone?Decades. That's how long it's been since I played a game of chess. Life gets in the way and suddenly one year became two, became a decade, became 2 decades. Playing chess used to be a passion of mine. What do you do when the passion to play is gone?
I try to maintain a life balance between work and personal interests. Chess for me has in the past been too mentally strenuous an activity after hours of work at the office. Still, I missed it. So, I've decided to spend a quarter hour of each lunch period I have studying chess on my work PC. I think playing games such as chess will keep your brain sharp and will pay dividends in other parts of life.
I used to be good. Real good. I know it will take months to shake off the rust but who knows, maybe I'll enter a tournament and see how things go. It's better than watching hours of TV or playing some video game for hours.
