The inevitable passage of time makes everything into a game; will I accomplish my goals within the allotted time, or won’t I?  In the past, I’ve fallen prey to the belief that simple persistence would carry me to victory, but that’s not the case if you account for the inevitability of time.

So I’m trapped in a game whether I like it or not.  A crucial step in “winning” is acknowledging that constraint.
