Tidbits for Success:Know the Rules

Recently, my grandson sent me to an interactive game that you play on a text.  I had never seen the game before, and had no clue how to even respond, as there were no rules to be found.  So in reply, I took some best guess shots on my text.  I attempted to play with him and quickly lost as we went back and forth on our text moves.

I thought how it is like life at times when we just jump in and do something not even in our skill set.  We may not even have a desire to do the task at hand, but take it on out of obligation. Before we know it, we have invested a lot of time in it and/or feel stressed because we procrastinated doing it.  Frustrated and irritated, we may avoid the person with whom we took on the task.  We may start feeling guilty when we should have just said no to begin with to save all the grief, despair, and disappointments.

Think about first what you are considering.  Is this something I want to take on?  Is this something that I have the resources or ability for?  Is this something in which I am the best choice for? 

Much time can be saved by slowing down, evaluating what is at hand, and make an excellent choice that serves you best.
