Who doesn’t love a bit of Pictionary?
It’s a classic family board game where you have to guess what the “picturist” is trying to communicate through the pictures that they draw.
Here are 15 lessons that I think Pictionary can teach us about approaching fitness:
1. The best players prove that it’s not about how much time you have but how effectively you use it.
2. No one really has a clue what they are doing at first but you just have to start and work it out as you go along.
3. You know your drawing is never going to be as good as the real thing but you draw anyway. Your imperfect drawing is what makes the game even better.
4. You know what you want to draw but it’s actually quite hard to physically execute and requires more effort than you first thought.
5. It’s probably going to take you a good few drawing attempts and a lot of guess work before a clear picture can be seen.
6. Unnecessary stress makes everything harder.
7. Your work is always more messy when you’re in a rush.
8. It’s pretty much guaranteed that people are going to misunderstand you at points. Even the people closest to you.
9. Worrying about what the other team are doing will get you nowhere.
10. Even having just one person understand what you’re trying to draw could help you win the whole game. But you can never win the game on your own.
11. Communication is key.
12. Improvisation is always involved. Get comfortable with being a little uncomfortable.
13. You’ve got a clear goal and outcome you’re working towards but you can absolutely still have fun along the way. In fact, the more fun, the better the experience.
14. When all is said and done no one actually gives a sh*t about who won. You’re all just grateful for the memories you made along the way.
15. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’ve come from. We’re all just out here trying to connect the dots.
