I don’t know if you have discovered that children’s jigsaw puzzles are mostly to meet the cognitive needs of a certain stage of growth, and they may not be interested when they grow up. But jigsaw toys are an exception. You may not see many adults playing with small blocks and trolleys, but the jigsaw puzzle is a game that you will never get tired of from 1 to 100 years old.
The history of puzzles can actually be traced back to Europe in the 18th century, where maps were cut into small pieces to help royal children learn geography. After improvement, it became a familiar puzzle. I remember the first time I played a jigsaw puzzle, I poured out the entire box and looked at a bunch of pixels on the floor, not knowing where to start. It wasn’t until I put these two pieces together that I started to have a clue to put them together.
When you have nothing, one of the best things you can do for yourself is to be a down-to-earth person, which is to accumulate knowledge, insight and thinking habits, like a jigsaw puzzle, accumulated and eventually lead to qualitative changes.
