About a year and a half ago I decided to learn how to do the Rubik’s Cube. For the longest time I had never known how to do it and I constantly would run into it nearly everywhere. There would be cubes in my friends dorm rooms, my teachers offices, literally everywhere. I then thought to myself at how useful it would be to know how to solve the cube. If I could do that I would be able to make friends and impress people anywhere!
This is the truth. The people who know how to solve the cube are an elite few. And this is not because it is exceptionally hard. It just takes some time and dedication. And there are resources for how to do it as well. I learned how to solve my cube at youcandothecube.com which offers tutorials for how to do it. You don’t even need to figure it out on your own, just read the instructions and learn that way. Upon doing this I felt amazing. It was a small but big accomplishment at the same time. It took me about a day to learn, but now to this day I have impressed countless people and made many friends who also have a passion for solving the cube. Back when I streamed, I would often place a cube in the background of my camera and bait people into asking me whether I could solve it. Almost every time I solved it on camera I would get a follow or sometimes even a subscriber.
The reason for this is because the cube appears difficult to most people. These people often in the past had picked up a cube, and then foolishly messed around turning the sides for two minutes and then gave up concluding that it was impossible. Then when they see someone else solve it they think “oh my God, he must be a genius!” The truth is, you don’t need to be a genius, you just need to be dedicated and not quit right away. Learning the 3×3 Cube is an accomplishment that I am very proud of. If I was going to ever hire people for my business or other businesses in the future, I think I might make solving the Rubik’s Cube a prerequisite. At the end of the day it is a dedication test. And I passed it.
Now I am on to my next dedication test: the 5×5 Cube. It sure looks harder, we shall see if it is. I am ever ready to spend some time learning this one and then impressing more people, especially myself. Stay tuned and when I solve it I will write another blog post on my success. Also, if you can solve the cube or if I have motivated you to solve either the 3×3 or the 5×5 because of this article please tag me in a photo on instagram or comment on my blog!
Keep Smiling Everyone, solve those cubes,
