“Nubtub: one who sucks at a particular video game, they are not new to the game, but possess some determent that prevents them from playing well, no matter how long they practice playing the game.”
Growing up I’ve always been very competitive and can’t help but try my very best at anything that captivates my imagination. As a teen I was heavily into gaming, when games first came online I began playing competitively and was instantly hooked. I would spend several hours a day “training”, always analysing and thinking of ways to get better. I would study the pro’s and learn by observing, reflecting on my defeats and considering ways to improve. I would learn the rules and experiment with ways to try and bend them.
I am very grateful for some of the lessons online gaming has taught me. One lesson in particular is that the majority of people will simply do what has been done before, repeating mistakes and not bothering to think for themselves.
A typical nubtub mistake.
Though I don’t spend nearly as much time gaming these days I still take approach life with the same mindset. No matter what your game is – work, social influence, leadership – I believe it’s important to take a structured approach. To observe the rules and question everything.
“An idiot repeats his mistakes. A smart man learns from his mistakes. But a genius learns from the mistakes of others.”
I’m a strong believer in learning from the mistakes of others. I created nubtub with the hopes of sharing practical advice for personal growth and making life easier. All my posts are from personal observation and study, I have no formal psychology or coaching qualifications, I am simply a student of life with a desire to succeed.
