The name of the game is Needs, Wants and Likes and can be played alone or with someone significant in your life. All that you have to do is think about the things in your life that you need, want or simply like. A need is a non-negotiable item in your life that you cannot live without. Think of things other than the generics (food, water, shelter, etc). Needs are things like the love and trust of your spouse, success in the workplace, and to be able to provide for your family. A want is semi- negotiable, such as your morning routine or a perfectly mowed lawn. If something more important comes up, perhaps a family event or some emergency, a want will go out the window. A like is something that is very negotiable and that you would like to do more of. Maybe you haven’t been on the green in ages, or you’d like to see more movies in the theater? Those would fall under the category of likes.
Now that you have thought on these subjects, pick the top five or six in each category. What does this list say about you? Compare yours to those of someone important to you. What does their list say about them or even about your relationship? You may be surprised with what you have in common with your loved one or what you never knew they wanted.
Take the time today for yourself and play this simple game. Even though it is easy conceptually, the benefits you gain may be great. Knowing about what drives you will help you achieve your goals as well as assist you in communicating your preferences with those around you. All that you need is a pen, paper, and someone who you think is amazing, and you’ll be all set to play the game.
