It turns out that the blocks are part of a self-help exercise Mike uses both with residents at his treatment center in Los Angeles and with his friends. The game, which he calls "Building Blocks," is played by removing a block from the tower, reading the phrase or thought-provoking question written on it and answering the question or filling in the blank(s).
"I love self-help games with purpose," Mike says.
Some of the questions pulled on the show include:
- "The last thing I do before bed is…"
- "I am motivated by…"
- "Three things on my bucket list are… "
- "As a child I wanted to be [blank] when I grew up."
