Algorithms of life..Rubik's Cube?

How do you solve a Rubik’s cube?
You know that darn puzzle that came out in 1980. The other day after dinner my 10-year-old nephew busted it out, yes 33 years later its still capturing the minds of the youth…and maybe some of the adults at the table. Dylan solved the puzzle in 60secs. I then got obsessed and tried it and it took me a little longer. Ok, I didn’t quite finish without his help. “You see it’s all about Algorithms Uncle Charles.” (Algorithms - a step-by-step procedure for calculations) Ahhhh…of course it is! If you notice a certain pattern on the cube and do the correct algorithms you solve the puzzle. I left that night with the nostalgia of the cube on my fingers but then started to dig deeper into what my nephew said.

“It’s all about Algorithms”… What simple words of wisdom.

Don’t we all see patterns in our life…some good and some bad? If we can see them, then we can continue the good and fix the bad patterns. All we have to do is take the step-by-step procedures to do so and you can solve your life’s puzzle.

If you have been going in one direction and it hasn’t been working then maybe its time to go in another. Sometimes all it takes is 60secs to recognize your pattern, take steps and solve.
