Life lessons learned from XCOM Impossible Ironman

In case if you are not familiar with XCOM — it is a modern reboot of the classical tactical game from 1993, where you command a small number of soldiers in order to protect the Earth from the Alien Invasion. “Ironman” mode means that you play with a single save, which is overwritten when you make any action. Impossible level of difficulty means that aliens can one-shot any of your soldiers, while you mostly cannot. And there are more aliens than your soldiers on the map. And things get worse every minute.

To be outnumbered is a typical situation in XCOM.
