"I don’t know what to tell you ... except that when nothing’s working you gotta try something new."
My brother wrote that and it reminded me that if something doesn't work, then it's okay to set it aside and try something new. I've been doing that lately, and it can get frustrating always trying something new, but it's keeping me on top of things, and I'm learning.
Some say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results. How many times do we do something over and over but keep hoping for a new and different result?
Many people in the business industry try and fail, but the successful ones learn to try something new, while the others just give up. A failure is just one way to not do something, so try a new way or a completely new idea.
The best part about sharing your ideas, besides getting praise for good ideas, is getting an outsider's perspective. It helps to try and see something from a new perspective, a way that you can't see it normally. You may realize that things need to be thrown away, tweaked a little, or that they are just plain awesome.
Then he said, "Also, sometimes when everything seems stuck life has a way of giving you a jump start to shake things up.... But you won’t always like what it does.”
You're not always going to like what life throws your way, what people say about what happens to you. Life will jump start its self sometimes, which can give new life, but it's not always easy life. The best you can do is learn to pick yourself up and make the best of it.
Try something new today, and tomorrow, and the next day. Take the best life has to offer everyday.
