Most Americans of a particular age know the chorus line from the song, “The Gambler.”

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you’re sittin’ at the table
There’ll be time enough for countin’
When the dealin’s done

 

But there is a lyric a little bit before then that’s even more important:

But in his final words
I found an ace that I could keep

 

Most people don’t look for aces.

They go through the motions and play out the hand but they don’t really try to win it.

Start looking for aces in every conversation.

You won’t always find one but you will find more than you are now.
