## Brief on Wordle Game

Wordle, a once-a-day “guess the word” game, has been one of the recent viral sensations on the internet. Josh Wardle, a Software Engineer, designed this game during the lockdown in October 2021 intended for him and his partner to play online, as a daily routine. By early Feb 2022, New York Times has purchased the game from Wardle for an undisclosed lower 7-figures sum.

## Simplicity of Wordle

You have to guess a five-letter word in six chances every day. After each guess, the color of the tiles will change to indicate the closeness of your guess. A correct letter in the correct spot will have a green tile. A correct letter in the wrong spot, will have a golden yellow tile. A wrong letter will have a grey tile.

## Life Lesson 1: Simple Rules, Common Sense

Similar to Wordle, we have to live life within its simple framework, applying our common sense!

The evolution of our brains and the development of our civilization has given way to what we refer to as “common sense” that we have to live by.

Much of common sense is still a lot more common to lead a meaningful and peaceful life.

## Life Lesson 2: One Wordle a Day, One Day at a Time

Just like how the Wordle challenge is available only one game a day, we can only live life one day at a time!

Whether we win or lose, we just have to keep coming back daily and keep Playing the Game of Life, with the new knowledge and awareness that we have gathered to date.

Play the Game of Life, One Day at a Time!

## Life Lesson 3: Limited Chances, Unlimited Choices

Though it might seem we have unlimited choices in front of us every day, we have to make deliberate and intentional choices that can lead us towards our goals and pursuits.

We all have things to accomplish in our lives — be it following our daily routines, taking care of our health, pursuing our learning goals, preparing for that certification, taking care of our family, getting a job, attending to our work, leading our teams, running our businesses or pursuing our spiritual path — everything needs focused and consistent efforts on a daily basis.

## Life Lesson 4: Color Codes, Clues, and Cues

As we progress in making those choices and taking those actions, we are constantly receiving feedback, whether we notice it or not. Some of them might be short-term, and some may be long-term feedback. We constantly get feedback both from internal and external sources.

Be alert and aware so you can notice and process the feedback, decide whether to continue or alter the course of future action and ensure you keep going on the right track.

## Life Lesson 5: Meaningful Words, Meaningful Life

The game accepts only dictionary-defined meaningful words. There is no such single dictionary for finding such meaning in life. The meaning of life has internal and external dimensions.

The purpose and meaning of our life is to have a sense of internal satisfaction and a sense of external achievement.

## Life Lesson 6: Sharing is Being Social

What we share, with whom we share, how much we share, and how often we share, can vary from individual to individual and situation to situation. Some social settings might compel us to share — to brag, to feel high, to put someone down, to show superiority, to get some support, to evoke sympathy, or to simply share for the heck of it. We mostly share when we know we will be understood, acknowledged, and accepted. This helps to keep us going, day after day, to come back and do better.

Sharing is a form of Social Therapy.

## Conclusion

So go ahead and Live Life One Wordle a Day! Put the pieces of your life puzzle together, one day at a time. Play On, Live On. No matter you win or lose, keep playing. We often feel we play to win and get dejected if we lose. We need to learn that we play for the sake of learning how to play the infinite game of life.

We do not play to win. We play to learn. We play to learn how to play the infinite game of life!

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
