Here is a short presentation from blogger and podcaster Chad Henderson, explaining all the life-lessons he learned from D&D. You know, stuff like the importance of initiative, how to cope when things don’t go according to plan, and dealing with failure. Oh, and not to trust gnomes.

Enjoyable video, thanks for sharing Bill!

Stuff like this always reminds me of the far-reaching impact Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson had on a generation (actually generations) of gamers who went on to successful lives and professional careers. For example, I know for a fact that D&D helped me foster a lifelong love of reading, which has helped develop my work habits and critical thinking skills.
