          This is a companion piece to the one on how wars are won from Aeon Essays. While this essay seems to be most about individual growth, it has important implications for the growth of a movement or collaborative as well. Thinking like a chess player is key for individuals; it is also a vital attribute for an organization or community faced with challenges of any kind. Kudos to Medium and Zat Rana for this contribution. Because a key lesson here is looking at challenges through a different lens, the featured images are from my Flowing Water Series taken in central Florida.
