The Domino Effect

Dominoes are small, flat blocks used as gaming objects. They are often referred to as bones, pieces, men, or stones and are typically made of wood or plastic. Some dominoes are engraved with numbers, while others have a colored surface. In a domino game, players take turns playing tiles on the table until the entire chain falls or no one can play anymore. This simple action is a great way to teach children how to read numbers and is also fun for adults and families.

The term domino has been in use since the late 17th century and is believed to have originated from a French word meaning “little dome.” It may have been inspired by the structure of the Catholic Church’s Dome of the Rock or the hooded cloak that a priest wears over his surplice.

Lily Hevesh started collecting dominoes when she was 9 years old and soon began making her own designs with them. Now 20, Hevesh is a professional domino artist who creates amazing displays for movies, TV shows, and events. Her YouTube channel has more than 2 million subscribers, and she has even worked on a Domino Effect setup for pop star Katy Perry.

Hevesh’s intricate domino displays are not only beautiful to look at, but they also have a lot of science behind them. She tests every aspect of an arrangement before she lays the first domino down. This allows her to make sure that it will work the way she wants. She also films each step of the process in slow motion so she can identify and correct any mistakes that might happen. She then builds her project in sections, beginning with the biggest 3-D arrangements and then putting together flat arrangements.

Another example of the Domino Effect is the popular business phenomenon in which a change to one behavior triggers a chain reaction that affects other behaviors as well. For example, if a person reduces their time spent watching television, they might notice that their eating habits improve as well. This is because the reduction in sedentary leisure time leads to healthier food choices.

This chain reaction can also be seen at a workplace. Last year, a Domino’s Pizza CEO went undercover on an episode of the reality show Undercover Boss to see how employees in several stores were performing. He found that the company’s delivery service was lagging, and he realized that it needed to focus on improving communication between the store managers and drivers. This would help ensure that customers received their orders as quickly and accurately as possible.

Domino’s new leadership listened to its employees, and the company was rewarded with a spot on the Detroit Free Press Top Workplaces list. The new leadership team has continued to emphasize the importance of listening to employees, and this is reflected in their company values. This value has helped them implement changes such as relaxed dress codes and college recruiting systems.
