Thank You Video Games for Agency

Blogging is hard. It has to be intentional and sometimes I don’t like planning. That’s my two-sentence explanation of my two-month hiatus, which followed a 10-month hiatus. So after about a year long break, I think I’m going to come back. But who knows, I could pick up another hobby as I did Disc Golf this past summer. Wicked addicting. Okay, enough digressing and to the point.

Agency. It’s great. And I 100% contribute my agency to growing up playing video games.

People who have a high sense of agency were actually more resilience when external forces beyond their control messed up their plans.” They just started off toward their goals again undeterred, because that was the way to control their destiny.

Games teach us that different choices have different outcomes and we control the choices we make.

That’s about all I’m going to say about that. I know it’s short, but the truth is that I’ve had this post saved as a draft for about a year and I figured this would be a great starting post to kick me off…again. So have at it. Thoughts? What do you contribute your agency to? Video games? A parent?
