Below is a nice game submitted by Zigwurst:


Try to find the best move.

Hint: Where does Black's knight want to go?


Did you find the answer? This is the part where "inception" happened, hopefully asking yourself the guiding question led you to find the answer - how did you like the thought process?

Black missed this idea, and released the pawn tension too quickly, leading to White gaining decisive penetration on the e-file:

Black played a nice game against a stronger opponent - making sure that we are always asking ourselves the question "Where do our pieces want to go?" would help make the next game against a stronger opponent an upset.
