Everything I need to know about life I learned by playing Spider Solitaire

1. So much just depends on the cards you’re dealt.
2. However, it’s next to impossible to win without taking risks.
3. And if you’re not alert and paying attention, you’re just going through the motions and tiring out your mousing finger for no good reason.
4. You have to think ahead.
5. Sometimes – but not always – you can undo the mess you made.
6. Sometimes walking away from a difficult hand and then coming back with a fresh perspective and/or a good night’s sleep can make all the difference.
7. When you think you’re surely about to lose, some innovative, creative moves along with a good dose of persistence can actually clear things up dramatically.
8. Getting a good start is crucial.
9. Sometimes it’s good to just admit defeat and start all over again.
10. Whenever possible, don’t do anything that dramatically limits your options.
11. Always remember the object (goals) of the game.
12. Sometimes just the right card will come at just the right moment – but you just can’t plan on it.
13. Sometimes what lays underneath is far more valuable than what’s on the surface.
