Achieve Positive Impacts With Dominoes

Domino is a game that involves players placing dominoes edge to edge on a table and then marking each domino with numbers. Those numbers can be written, drawn or painted and they are used to determine the order in which the players will play each domino. The first player who successfully plays a domino with both ends showing the same number wins. There are many variations of domino, some of which involve the use of different shapes and additional markers such as arrows and pips.

The popularity of domino has increased with the advent of online versions and apps. These new technologies are making it easier than ever to play this classic game.

There is something magical about watching a line of dominoes fall, one by one. Each domino has the potential to impact other dominoes around it, causing them to fall in an exciting sequence of events. This same principle can be applied to other areas of life. By focusing on good dominoes, you can achieve positive impacts that ripple through your entire life.

Lily Hevesh has been fascinated by dominoes since she was 9 years old. Her grandparents had a classic 28-pack, and she enjoyed setting them up in straight or curved lines before flicking the first one over. Now, she’s a professional domino artist with over 2 million YouTube subscribers and has created mind-blowing domino setups for movies, TV shows and even an album launch for pop star Katy Perry. Hevesh credits her success to a simple strategy: “I follow a version of the engineering-design process.”

When you stand up a domino, it has some potential energy, which is based on its position. As soon as you start pushing it, though, that potential energy turns to kinetic energy and propels the domino toward the ground. That energy then travels to the next domino, causing it to knock over. It continues like this until all of the dominoes have fallen.

Dominoes are usually made of wood, although ceramic and plastic ones have also been made. Each domino has a specific number of pips (small spots) on its face that correspond with numbers on the other faces of other dominoes in the set. Some large sets are marked with more readable Arabic numerals to make them easier to read.

In business, it’s important to identify your good dominoes—those tasks that contribute to the bigger picture and will have an impact on your future. Once you know which tasks are the most important, it’s crucial to focus on them until completion. You’ll find that this approach will allow you to be more productive and will help you to achieve your goals faster.
