COME GIOCARE IL GIOCO DEL MONOPOLIO COME UN IMPRENDITORE?

Published

on

Scrittore: Mahmoud Mansi

Traduttore: Lynda Naoui

Prima della generazione della tecnologia la maggior parte di noi hanno trascorso molto tempo nei giochi da tavolo. Dopo essere cresciuto ho notato quanto siano utili questi giochi per gli adulti, così come sono utili per gli adolescenti e i bambini. I giochi da tavolo ci insegnano lezioni sulla vita.

Monopoli ha una versione egiziana che si chiama Bank El Haz, che significa “Banca della Fortuna”. È lo stesso principio di Monopoli ma con nomi di paesi arabi. Questo mi ha fatto pensare: questo gioco è tutto di “monopolio”? Qual è lo scopo dietro? È il dominio economico, successo fallendo gli altri, o avere più risorse? Questo gioco gira tutto sulla “fortuna”? Alcune persone sono d’accordo che anche la loro propria vita dipenda dalla fortuna.

Di solito ci sono 3 tipi di giocatori in Monopoly:

1-C’è il più fortunato, che di solito incontra tutte le terre importanti e le acquista.

2-Colui che ha una fortuna “normale” e si trova attraverso alcune terre importanti e altre meno importanti come ad esempio l’azienda dell’acqua.

3- Colui che ha la minima fortuna, il giocatore che incontra solo le terre meno importanti. Questa persona è di solito me.

Nella vita reale troverete questi tre giocatori. A volte c’è un “dado” che controlla le nostre vite o l’ambiente imprenditoriale. Questi dadi potrebbero essere l’economia, la politica, i problemi personali, la salute, le tendenze globali … ecc. Ma “controllo” non è la parola giusta. Questi fattori; I dadi, hanno un controllo, ma non sono “in controllo”. Questo è uno dei concetti che usavo per vincere sempre.

Ok concentriamoci sul terzo giocatore; Quello sfortunato. Di solito quando sono in quella situazione, dopo il terzo turno mi rendo conto che tutti gli altri giocatori fanno offerte, commutano terre e stabiliscono un piano per iniziare a costruire negozi per aumentare l’affitto. Dal momento che sto attraversando i luoghi sbagliati, allora nessuno sarebbe interessato a fare affari con me e completare un set. 2 turni di più e pagherò enormi affitti e vendere le poche terre che possiedo. Sarò il primo fuori dal gioco. Non sono fortunato per questo gioco. I dadi sono sempre contro la mia volontà. Andrò meglio a smettere ora e andare a guardare un film invece. Ma ho deciso di giocare. Ho scoperto che non devo deviare o cambiare le regole del gioco per vincere, ma posso cambiare la mia percezione. Ho iniziato a fare un’analisi SWOT per comprendere appieno la mia situazione.

Sono stato il giocatore più ricco del gioco perché non ho trascorso il mio capitale nell’acquisto di molte terre, è una forza. Non ho molte terre di alto valore che posso usare per un affare o un commercio lucrativo, che è una debolezza. Ho una grande quantità di denaro che presto si ridurrà e scomparirà se non lo investo in niente, è una minaccia. Ma come posso investire mentre non ho risorse fisse o passività ?! La risposta è semplice, se non hai il tuo progetto per investire, investi in un altro progetto in cui credi, e questa è l’occasione. Se non puoi essere un imprenditore, puoi diventare un incubatore.

Ho iniziato a guardarmi intorno, analizzando l’ambiente. Chi è il candidato più adatto? Naturalmente la persona più fortunata, tipo 1; Il giocatore con il denaro più basso e il maggior numero di terre. Questo giocatore è in realtà in una minaccia profonda. Non ha molto soldi per costruire negozi e alberghi, mentre gli altri giocatori che hanno il rating , “tipo 2” avranno sia il denaro che le terre. Il tipo 1 è il mio affare, lui ha bisogno dei miei soldi per costruire con esso oppure dopo altri 2 turni venderanno tutte le loro terre agli altri giocatori. Quindi do’ semplicemente al tipo 3 del giocatore il 70% dei miei soldi.

Il contratto

  1. Avrai 70% del mio denaro corrente per costruire negozi e alberghi.
  2. Se incontro una delle terre che hai costruito, non ti pagherò nulla.
  3. Poichè io sono il vostro partner e investitore, prenderò la mia parte del 50% del profitto dei terreni.
  4. Il contratto può essere riscritto o terminato dopo 10 giri completi.
  5. Se il contratto è interamente cessato, il capitale che ho fornito all’inizio restituisce a me senza alcun interesse.

Complimenti. Così semplice, hai assicurato il tuo capitale in beni profittevoli. Ma questo non basta.

I giocatori di tipo 2 si sentiranno minacciati. Questa è un’altra opportunità per me. Comincio a lavorare per il mio secondo affare.

Ho ancora dei soldi inutilizzati con me (il 30% rimasto del mio capitale). Investire tutti e lasciare qualche soldo in tasca per la strada.

Contratto Numero 2

  1. Avrai una buona quantità di denaro da me per aiutarti a costruire tutti i negozi di cui hai bisogno.
  2. Se hai delle terre mancanti che posso fornirti per completare un set, ti farò un prestito gratis.
  3. Se incontro una delle terre che ho investito non pagherò alcun affitto.
  4. In qualità di investitore e di un partner minore, prenderò la mia quota del 25% sui profitti delle mie terre e degli investimenti.
  5. Il contratto può essere riscritto o terminato dopo 10 giri completi.
  6. Se il contratto è interamente terminato, il capitale che ho fornito all’inizio restituisce a me senza alcun interesse. Ricevo anche le terre che ti ho prestato.

Congratulazioni per il tuo secondo affare! Fondamentalmente è possibile raggiungere un punto in cui si è possibile passare su qualsiasi terra senza pagare nulla. In realtà non possiedi niente, ma non stai pagando affitti, e stai facendo soldi da “ogni” transazione effettuata tra uno degli altri giocatori. A pochi giri sarai la persona più ricca. Ma è sufficiente?

Sarò l’imprenditore mega per i prossimi 10 round, ma cosa succederà dopo le parole? Forse gli altri giocatori saranno molto minacciati dalla mia prestazione e tutti collaboreranno contro di me! Sì, è una cosa logica da fare se fossero loro. Quindi, dopo che i dieci round sono finiti, tutti terminano i loro contratti e trovano un modo per farmi. Tieni presente che questi giocatori sono molto più intelligenti di quando hanno iniziato il gioco. Anche loro penseranno fuori dalla scatola.

Come persona imprenditoriale dovrei sempre leggere il futuro. La mia occasione è nei primi 10 giri dopo gli accordi. Dovrei iniziare a passare dall’incubazione all’acquisizione e all’acquisizione e cominciare a investire i tuoi profitti nell’acquistare altre organizzazioni; Terre e set completi.

Non importa quale sia “l’ambiente”, il “dado” o la “fortuna” che mi ha dato, ero ancora in grado di creare la mia analisi SWOT e trovare un modo. Ho trattato con gli altri giocatori come partner invece di concorrenti o avversari. Puoi applicarla nel tuo prossimo gioco Monopoly Board? Puoi allora applicare questo approccio in realtà? Godetevi l’esperienza e la “teoria del monopolio dell’imprenditorialità”.

Qisaty Project & Developing Talent in Children with Special Needs in Egypt

Published

on

Edited By: Mahmoud Mansi

Qisaty Project – founded by Mona Lamloum – was launched on 26th December 2019 to support children talents through a series of storytelling, writing and drawing workshops.

The total number of children who participated in the storytelling workshop is 60 including the most talented 20 who were selected to the story writing sessions, 16 children ranging from 6 to 14 years old got their stories selected to be drawn by 19 children with special needs.

The drawing workshops were held in 3 cities in Egypt with cooperation with 2 special needs associations; Nida Society Rehabilitation with both branches in Cairo and Luxor. 14 children, and Ashab El-Erada Association in Alexandria. 5 children.

The children have different disabilities, hearing loss, partial blindness, movement disability, learning difficulty disability, mental disability and increased electricity in the brain.

Of course such an interesting project needs proper preparation and an intellectual plan. Mona Lamloum shared some of the challenges that she and her team have faced during the project:

1-The global pandemic and the sudden lockdown.

2- The fact that most of the children with special needs suffer from many chronic diseases which lowers their immunity, in addition to the huge responsibility that lies on the team while holding the workshop during the pandemic.

3-The fear of the parents of the children with special needs participation at the drawing workshops due to the pandemic and the lack of their immunity. Which was managed to concur with the help of the project partners in drawing workshops. 

Eventually, Qisaty Project was held at exceptional circumstances and according to deadlines set up before the global Corona pandemic. However, the team did their best to get the project done within the lockdown with a quality that is aspired from the beginning, and that was done simply by teamwork, sharing a unified vision, and collaborating to find new solutions.

The result is 16 short stories in addition to 64 drawings by hands of talented children with special needs and with variable disabilities from three cities: Cairo, Alexandria and Luxor. Each drawing tells a different scene from a short story inspired from the children themselves to be published as a grand book that gathers the short stories and the drawings of all the talented young participants.
