The Best Advice I Ever Got, Part 1
Todays post is thanks to my grade 8 teacher. When he was teaching us BEDMAS (the order in which to do large equations) he said this: "When you don't know what to do, do something." While this doesn't actually make a lot of sense with BEDMAS (because you can't just do something you have to start with brackets etc.) I always remembered those words. Whenever I have been frozen with indecision or fear or uncertainty I always think, I don't know what to do, but I know I have to do something. Just remembering that breaks the mental cycle of worrying about making the wrong mistake and gets me moving into making a decision which really is the desired end result. This can apply to so many things. It is really easy for me (and I think a lot of us) to be intimidated by big decisions and for that to just freeze our progress. We can sometimes be afraid of moving for fear of moving in the wrong direction. Just remember, moving in ANY direction is better than staying still and stagnating and even if you make mistakes along the way you will get to where you want to be a lot faster than if you let fear freeze you.
