When Josh Waitzkin was a boy he lived in New York. After school, he would head down to Central Park. There were rows of chess tables set up for the public. Old intellectual men would play against each other, hustling one another, competing. Josh Waitzkin watched transfixed. It enthralled him. It captured his imagination.
Despite not being officially taught the rules of chess, or memorising a series of opening moves, he began playing. That would be impressive for any young boy. But what was astonishing about Josh Waitzkin is that he would win. He beat people who had been playing for decades. He out hustled the hustlers.
Josh went on to become World Chess Champion. He even had a movie made about him; Searching For Bobby Fischer.
It’s not that the young boy started out wanting to become World Chess Champion. He started out completely absorbed in a game.
