Thank you for the insightful comment! The game metaphor is not my own - there were a number of famous books (The innner game of Tennis, the inner game of music and so on) and I'm riffing on that. I think you are correct, understanding, working with and developing mental qualities is a big part of it, especially EQ. I often argue that software development is a creative act, more akin to the composition of music than the building of a bridge. It sounds like you've thought about this a bit already, reach out if you'd like to continue the conversation!
