I love to play chess. I play it often with my daughter, and I thoroughly enjoy seeing her strategizing against me. Studies have proved that playing chess enhances kids' learning skills in math, science and technology. There is also a huge correlation between chess tactics and entrepreneurial skills. For me, it's no surprise to learn that so many young chess masters go on to become successful entrepreneurs later in life.

The practices of thinking strategically, analyzing a landscape of options, accurately weighing the consequences of each move and thinking ahead about potential moves in the future are all essentially what successful entrepreneurs do. In a game of chess, you learn from your own mistakes and benefit to recognize move patterns and blunders made by your opponent which become strategic knowledge for your own use in future moves.
