5 Lessons Learnt From Playing Piano Tiles 2



learn from piano tiles


I downloaded the piano tiles game a month ago after I noticed it was quite popular among my peers. I wanted to find out what made the game enticing to play. So I downloaded and started playing it.

It was a simple and lovely game. To play, you just have to keep the music playing by pressing the moving tiles across your screen as they roll past.

What made me love the game was the different classical music tunes contained in it. And the songs really brought back some good childhood memories.

I was instantly hooked. And I played that game for hours at a go. To make matters worse, it
could be connected to Facebook so you can play and see the ranking of your friends who also play the game.

In a few days of play, I became #1 on my list. And I experienced and learnt a whole lot of things from playing this game some of which are shared follows:

#1 You Always Get Better With Practice
This theory has proven to be true at all times. Indeed practice is the only thing that makes you perfect. When I started playing this game, some songs were difficult for me to play especially those ones with double tiles falling simultaneously in chain form.

The moving tiles which now look slow to me were looking faster then. With continuous play, it became easier to master the double tiles pattern and match very fast tile speeds. In anything you do, practice, practice and keep practicing it. That's the only thing that makes you better.

#2 With More Practice, You Discover Your Own Unique Skills
I was surprised at myself when I kept playing this game. I was sometimes scared a little bit. I never knew my hands could move that fast and often times it appeared as if my mind took over.

I wasn't controlling my hands anymore, but it was moving and moving real fast. In the movement, I discovered some unique skills for the game which enabled me move my hands even faster. When you practice often, you'll discover the best pattern and skill used in doing anything.

#3 Focus Only On The Mission/Competition Before You
The first time I checked my ranking when I connected the game to my Facebook, I was the last person on the list and I saw the ones at the top, middle and below.
 The positions were determined by the number of crowns you get as you complete your tiles. You start getting crowns when you've gotten 3 stars first.

The number of my crowns were just 5 and I could only see the number of crowns which the person directly above me had. I couldn't see the others. The game was designed in such a way that you can only see the score of the person directly above you and all those below you.

This made me focus only on beating the score of the person above me. And that helped me progress really fast. It is easier to give up when you are allowed to see the score of the Person at the top than the person just above you.

Don't look at the masters. Don't look at those who have gone too far. Focus on taking the step before you and you'll gradually work your way up.

#4 Once You Beat The Average, It Becomes Easier
It was easy to work my way up from the bottom of the rank list to the average. At the bottom of that list, just like in life, many people give up easily. Some quit too early, others abandon the game totally.

At this point, only your love for the game drives you.
And that's why it's important you do what you love. Because that's what will keep you from quitting when you feel like it.

As I rose to the center, I saw that there was a wide margin between my score and the person above me who was closer to the top. It was so wide, I wanted to quit, but I decided not to. I gradually played a couple more games and before I knew it, I beat that score.

Now I officially joined the top guys and guess what, it was easier at the top. The margins between the top scores were little unlike when I was at the average. I feel it was caused by two things: At the top, it's harder to get more crowns and when you're at the top, there is a tendency to relax.

Most of them were relaxing and that gave me time to overtake them all. One tried to stop me, bit twas too late.

#5 The View is so much better at the top
Yeah! When, I finally worked my way to the top, it really felt good being up there. There was no one else above me and I could see the score of every other person below me.
There was no more competition. I was now only challenging myself to beat my own records.

Of course, I relaxed and focused on other things. Bit occasionally, I checked the list to see who's trying to climb up to me and then top up my score.
It's really fun at the top, both in the game and in real life. You get to see things from a very wide perspective.

That's it. My experience and lessons from Piano Tiles.
Till next time,
Nigel.

A Practical Guide To Quit Porn For Good

I don't need to start defining what pornography is to you, why humans are attracted to it and how it affects the brain. You can use Google to find them out. I believe why you are reading this article is simply to find out how you can end the desire to see pornography for good. That's what I'm going to FOCUS on. No distractions.

Almost everyone who uses the internet knows what porn is, even though we'd like to pretend that it's not there, but we all know it's there.

The internet is one of the best things invented on earth and has led to quick exchange of information across nations and beyond borders.

Ideally, things should be improving rapidly based on this development, but guess what? Few people are actually using that internet for something useful. Many have been drawn to the dark side of the net where pornography lives.

Web statistics really show that a lot more people are spending more time viewing porn sites and the number is increasing.

Enough of the pr…

The Definition Of A True Woman

Previously, I wrote an article on the definition of a true man. It would be fair enough to also write and article for the women who read this blog.

Women are beautiful, lovely and sensitive creatures way different from men in a lot of things both mentally and physically. They are special in their own way and also play very important roles in our society.

Just like in the case of the men, value systems seem to be changing for women too.

Most women seem to rate themselves these days based mainly on their looks. They spend so much time and money in ensuring they look very good, clean and posh. They can do anything to look attractive and get attention.

Some even go to the extent of almost going nude on social media just to feel good about themselves and get reassuring likes.

Painfully, most of these same women don't pay attention to what is inside of them. They often neglect the unseen qualities which make them who they truly are.

There are some women who boast about how many men the…

After Reading This, Your Brain Will Not Remain The Same

I just came across this video on YouTube and I really think it has a wonderful content to be shared here on the bold winner's blog.

Dr. Lara Boyd, a researcher in neuroscience and neurobiology who established the Brain Behavior Lab had some very interesting facts to share with us about the human brain.

Contrary to what we thought, the brain doesn't stop changing or developing at a certain age. The brain constantly changes it's shape, chemical processes and patterns regularly.

And these changes are determined mainly by our individual behaviors. If we choose to change our brains, we must change our actions, what we do, where we go to, what we listen to, what we see around us.

There is no quick fix or drug to enhance neuroplasticity(the ability of your brain to reorganize itself and form new neural connections) than to change your behavior.

An interesting fact is that there is a degree of variability playing a great role in her research. The rates of neuroplasticity varies i…
