Best AdviceMany people come to this site looking for a couple specific games. When they find them, great, the job is done. But there is one thing I want ALL my guests to know regardless of how many or how few pages they read. Therefore, I decided to put the information on Egg Bowling and every other game instruction page. So, when you see this box again, and you have already familiarized yourself with the information, skip it and move on to finding more games (other than Egg Bowling) for your event.
But for those reading this for the first time, here is the best
advice I can pass on from my many years of experience planning and executing large and small events. Read on…
“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.” These are great words from A.A. Milne, the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh. I couldn’t agree more. And a solid foundation of organizing and planning is needed for most events. But I am here to tell you even with the BEST organization, no event is going to proceed EXACTLY as planned. You may even have a Plan B, C or D as a back-up. That’s fabulous! But trust me on this one; something will happen that you had no way of anticipating. So what now? Here is the trick. Pay close attention to this because it is the single most important piece of wisdom I can share with my readers.
Are you ready?
Learn to mentally let go of your perfect
the minute the party, event, game
or special occasion starts.
That’s it. I could write an entire page on how to “be in the
moment” and “have fun at your own party.” But neither of those will happen if you don’t have the mindset that it’s alright to have things turn out differently than you imagined. The good news is that usually what you planned in your head that didn’t come through was never even missed by most.
So if you are going along, playing Egg Bowling, or any other group activity, and it leads you down a road you didn’t foresee… Enjoy the ride.
