Anyone else have a hobby they love, but are actually not very good or downright bad at it? And you don't care?
I love board games—Eurogames, not the cheesy ones like Monopoly. I love them so much that I go to conventions to play as many as possible. Whenever I used to have extra money, I’d spend it on board games. I totally love them. I love them enough that I’m going to a convention for free this year because I agreed to be a speaker about how to get more kids playing board games in classrooms.
But I’m really bad at playing them. I am not a very good strategist. I never care if I win or lose—which is good because I almost always lose. I love the artwork of the games—I love how many of them have a story that draws you in. I love the social aspects of gaming. So I don’t mind being a terrible player.
Am I the only one content to have a hobby that they are admittedly not very skilled or talented in it, but have fun anyway? Or is it important to be really good at whatever you spend your time doing?
