Just One More Time? …


“Fall seven times, stand up eight.”~

Japanese Proverb

Well, this sounds all well and good, but is getting back up ALWAYS the best decision?

If I fail, say seven times or so, these experiences may be telling me something about:

1)  My Chosen Direction …

2)  My Personal and Professional Skills …

3)  My Overall Game Plan …

4)  My Analytical Abilities …

I know that those who are firmly embedded in positive thinking will probably feel that persistence and continued effort are the way to go.  

However, I do remember another old saying:

“Stop banging your head against a brick wall.”

As always, the trick is to know when you need to adjust your approach and when you need to change goals.

Trying to decide whether my head can take many more brick walls in the Heartland ….
