“Positive Sum Relationships”

In economic game theory, there’s something called zero sum games which are interactions where someone wins and someone loses (like putting money into a fantasy football pot). But in positive sums, all parties benefit (like investing in a winning company – the whole pie gets larger). I’ve had a few experiences recently that had me reflecting on new friendships as positive sum relationships – where my pie of love and connectedness gets larger.

I went to a huge music festival with Danish and Houdini last weekend. I’ve never been to an EDM festival (certainly not the worlds largest) and wouldn’t have even thought about going if it wasn’t for those guys. It was an eye opening experience – opened doors for me into new types of music, artists and future events. 

Similarly a few weeks ago Lumbergh got me back into golf after a 2 decade breather. Had fun and see myself doing it again in the near future. 

Even the everyday interactions like StrayCat teaching us dead bug shuffles or 2-man big bois is an example of new relationships growing my pie.

I know some see relationships as a zero sum game – where they see themselves only being able to have so many friendships or interests. But I see the value in proactively finding and growing new friendships and interests to enrich and expand my life. It’s a practice and philosophy I commit to!

Rock on, Slash!
