Hiiii guys, I know some of you are already surprised at the topic and you’re wondering to yourself “what does she have to say”. Well hold still cause you’re about to find out.

I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately and let’s just say I stumbled upon game theory. It’s very technical at first glance but trust me it’s never that deep so going with the definition of the dictionary, game theory can be defined as

“the branch of mathematics concerned with the analysis of strategies for dealing with competitive situations where the outcome of a participant’s choice of action depends critically on the actions of other participants”

Bla bla bla, it’s even getting overwhelming for me 😂😂 looking at it. The bulk of it however involves strategy, 2 people, choices and actions”

It’s a theory and hence has to be applied so we’re applying it to life, our relationships in its entirety. Recently, I watched a video and the speaker said one thing that was so profound “don’t advance people until they qualify” . Most times, we don’t think strategically when it comes to our friendships and relationships. We’re just like “anything goes”. We don’t connect the dots and patterns in people’s behavior. We just let it slide just because “we’re friends”

Well on a side note this Wednesday, this is me telling you “APPLY GAME THEORY IN YOUR LIFE”. Most importantly in the relationships you plan on investing a lot in. Ask yourselves questions “he did this, she did this, is this the kind of person I want around me, how can her action affect me, should I take this friendship to another level, is she giving her all, he acted this way and I see it as disrespectful…” The list is long.

It’s never that deep because sometimes our instincts can appeal to us but then again do we even follow our instincts? Either ways guys, your friendships and relationships go a long way and contribute to some parts of you so I’d advice you be strategic about it. In the end if you look deeply, strategy is employed even in the littlest of things.
