My theory on how life works

So there are many different analogies for life. One of my favourites is the game of Plinko as seen on The Price is Right. Let’s watch a game and then I’ll give my commentary.

As I see things, these are the parallels to life that can be gleaned from this simple game:

  1. Life is a series of choices
  2. Chance plays a large part in these decisions (more than you might think)
  3. As life progresses, the number of possibilities decreases
  4. You may get stuck and need some help
  5. You may not always like the rules
  6. The distance between success and failure may be very small
  7. Who knows, maybe you get a few tries at life

Let me know what you think. Are there other things you see? Is there another analogy to life that you like better?
