In this post I would like to share some of my philosophical thoughts. Can chess be applied to the real world? I'm sure, that yes! In my opinion, the most important benefits of playing chess are the following :

1) Thinking Big.  This benefit should not be underestimated!

"I like thinking big. If you're going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big."

Donald Trump

2). Evaluating life situations properly. Who you are now, what are your limits for now,etc.

3). Logic skills.

4). Planning. Chess helps to evaluate life situations, create a plan and follow it till you achieve your goal.

5). Risk management. Chess players usually won't invest their money into dubious sources or run a risky business. ( see benefit 2).

6). Making better decisions under time limitation.

All those principles are ranked accordingly to my personal experience and life understanding.
