Before your life ends up in Zugzwang
Learn to pin, Devoid of sins!
Skewer your thoughts,
Hope against odds.
Manoeuvre your troops and forces
Plant outposts and seal victories
Numbered are your moments,
To post your deserving achievements!
Plan, Work Sail and Prevail
This is the way you must trail.
Chess is timing, so Is Life!
Move with a purpose, Have High aims!
Face the gale when
Defence is the demand
Hold on! Take charge and command.
Do the best and Leave the Rest
And he will save your position from the Critical Zugzwang!

If you change one thing . . . Looking back on your life, what would you change if you could?
In the classic 1946 film 'It's a Wonderful Life', the main character, a small-town bank officer played by Jimmy Stewart, is about to commit suicide when an angel shows him how different the lives of people in Bedford Falls would be if he hadn't been born. The movie is a favourite because it affirms how each of us touches the lives and shapes the future in unexpected and often marvellous ways.
More modern films like Back to the Future, Sliding Door, and Frequency are built on a similar premise: If you change the past, you change the future, often in dramatic and unpredictable ways. If you change one thing, you change everything.
Given the potential impact of every decision you make, it's wise to think ahead. Although few things turn out exactly as we plan, the better we understand how our choices start a chain reaction of events, the more likely we are to get what we want.
The enormous complexity of cause and effect leads to another conclusion: It's futile to look back at our lives with 'what if' scenarios. What's done is done. Although changing our past would change our present, it would do so in ways that are so unpredictable that we could never know whether it would be for better or worse.
Accept and celebrate the fact that what you are today is a direct result of everything that's happened to you. It's pointless to wish things were different. Remember, if you change one thing, you change everything.
'If you change one thing - you change everything'
