I don’t know about all of you, but this hits a little too close to home. It is frustrating to run into a problem and realize it is all too familiar. This is especially true when I don’t take the time to sit down and think through a problem after it has already happened – that discussion with myself about how to avoid the same problem in the future. Sometimes we get so busy moving on to the next thing that we forget to slow down and make more efficient use of our time. If I wasn’t repeating the same silly mistakes, then I wouldn’t need to be rushing from problem to problem.
Do you have any methods to remind yourself to slow down and think through your actions so you don’t repeat the same problems? I’d love to hear what works for you.
People who do not develop and practice good thinking often find themselves at the mercy of their circumstances. They are unable to solve problems, and they find themselves facing the same obstacles over and over again. – John Maxwell
