A few days ago, I had the absolute pleasure of witnessing a chess player teach his art to a young boy.
There was absolutely nothing patronizing about his attitude. He didn't talk down to the boy. He never corrected him. He did not care one bit about winning. In fact, when he saw a good move, he was genuinely thrilled about where that might lead the game.
When the boy made a move that was probably dubious, the man would say "Interesting choice. Now, let's figure out what might happen next. I might do this, and then this, and then this... So, let's figure out together how you could position your pieces even better?"
It was not like they were playing a game against each other, but just having fun together over their game.
It was truly inspiring, and the boy seemed to absolutely love every single bit of it. I would like to see way more things like that!
