A Life Coaches Lesson: Game Theory and the Art and Science of Meaning


If you don’t have a sense of meaning in your life it is unlikely that you can succeed at the game of life. Without this meaning how will find you find happiness and contentment. I often ask myself;

“How would I even know if something had more than a superficial meaning to me?” 

“What makes something significant?”

“What is the link between a life of meaning and significance and what one might call, ‘Spirituality’”?

 “If something is important to me, whether good or bad, is it important because it reinforces my sense of being?”

Years ago I came to the conclusion that it is a personal choice that we all possess to give something significant meaning; and yet, it is what we give meaning to that is essential to our sense of self.  In the quest for spirituality, many of us have developed an increased awareness of and reached out to our cultural, ethnic and religious roots.

I realized that though I, as everyone around me, had created or accepted a personal life story, to create a story like this requires a larger supporting cast. One does not need special training or a college degree to see the value in people, places, and things; especially those people, places and things that have formed the “living landscape” of the known and unknown stories that have shaped who we are.

I came to understand, as I pondered the life game I was about to create, that we give meaning to people, places, and things, and what that meaning is, is a reflection of how we think and function. I began to play with this idea of “meaning” as I went through my daily life.

Do you think much about the meaning of your life? You might want to try it. You’d be amazed at how much about yourself you don’t know.
