Reality Blog Challenge: For the Fastest Way to the Gold Brick, Use a Map

I’m goal oriented.

I wouldn’t have said that three months ago…

If you spend any time around children, you may have heard of a video game called Minecraft. Players create a block-shaped character and move around a block-shaped world, building block-shaped things.

For reasons I just can’t comprehend, kids love that game… mine are no exception.

One day a couple of months ago, upon being begged relentlessly to play Minecraft with them, I made a discovery. I was throwing out my usual responses: I’d rather play something else. I’m no good at it. I don’t know what I’m supposed to do.

Then out of my mouth pops, ”I need a goal.”

It was a revelation… as if I was discovering this for the very first time. If I can’t even play a game without a goal, how can I build a business without one?

Gold Bricks

Enter Lego Marvel Superheroes. There are 250 gold bricks (bricks are Lego pieces) hidden in this game. You have to accomplish specific things to earn them.

I love finding gold bricks. I open the map, which shows where they are, and set my destination. The little red ghost figure guides me to each one… a virtual ghost-Lego GPS. Once there, it takes some problem solving to earn it. Every one we earn brings us one step closer to our goal… getting all 250.
