Patrick Fynn Writes;
456 desperately indebted group of people in South Korea are recruited to compete in series of childhood games. The ultimate prize is $38 million.
Whiles it’s fair to mention this is one of the best TV series you’ll find on Nexflix, the show is philosophical in a way that gets you thinking about life itself.
Here are a few lessons I gathered:
- Don’t deal with people who have nothing to lose or nothing to gain.
- You can’t always succeed by playing fair. Sometimes you cheat to win!
- The basic solution to all the world problems is leadership. Society just needs the right set ups, regulations, directions, inspirations, guidance.
- There’s no perfect system, no perfect place, no perfect environment. No matter how well a system is designed, it will always suffer irregularities. Every system can be corrupted.
- Getting a venture started isn’t usually a difficulty. But finding the right people to work with is more daunting.
- There are no clear, assured certain ways of making it in life.
- Don’t despise others because of what they don’t have. Don’t be too quick to accept people because of what they have.
- The person who brings you joy will be the same to bring you sadness. Often, it’s not their choice. Circumstances make them.
- Life always gives us options. Life is actually all about options.
- Choose your partner carefully.
- Decision making is the most difficult thing to do
- Everything has consequences.
- There are no useless people. No matter what a person is, they can still be resourceful.
- The world runs on the principles of competition for survival. Man will eat man when it comes to their self-benefit. People will break all rules of moral judgment to survive.
- Everything is possible when money is the motivation. Never underestimate what people can do for money!
- Sometimes people disappoint you, not because they are bad people. Because circumstances cause them to.
- It is not possible for all of us to succeed, even if given the same opportunities. Life isn’t designed for everyone to make it.
- Don’t trust absolutely. And don’t mistrust entirely.
- Intelligence wins over strength
- The world is not totally screwed. You can always find hope in humanity.
