There’s a fascinating video about kids who were told they would win a Hoverboard prize if they didn’t move for five rounds of distractions.
Each round had mounting pressure on the kids – thanks to distractions like letting in some cute dogs, a bouncy house, and an ice cream truck.
One kid would succumb at every round. But one girl managed to survive the test by convincing herself that she was only interested in the Hoverboard.
However, at the very end, when she got the hoverboard, she didn’t seem very happy.
When they asked her why, she said – “I don’t know how to ride a hoverboard.”
“Are you regretting winning?”
A good reminder to make sure we’re playing games we actually want to win.
