Never forget it.

"The funny old thing about life, it's what you make of it."

Life is often compared to a game of cards. You cannot control what you're dealt, but you can control what you do with those cards.

I feel this metaphor is often not properly framed. You have only one hand.

Playing conservatively, wildly, blind or cheating are all legitimate strategies. However, remember to consider that what you do in this round affects future players.
