COT I’m reading a book about puzzles (The Puzzler: One Man’s Quest to Solve the Most Baffling Puzzles Ever, from Crosswords to Jigsaws to the Meaning of Life), and there’s a section about the Rubik’s Cube. The author was a kid when Rubik’s Cubes were incredibly popular in the 80s, and he tried hard to solve his. A TV show featured teenagers who had mastered the Rubik’s Cube and could solve it in under a minute. Instead of feeling motivated by that, however, the author felt defeated and stopped trying to complete the puzzle. I was reminded how I can quickly jump to feeling defeated by the accomplishments of those around me, and I encouraged PAX (and me!) to reframe those moments as chances to be encouraged for those close to us and a renewed motivation.
