On never giving up

I am working on my stick-to-itiveness. My persistence. I think at one time in my life I would hold on and keep trying even if it killed me. And at other times I’ve given up before an idea even gets out the door, because I’m tired of things not working out. I’m trying for a balance.

So I liked this article, and I believe the advice because the writer practices what he preaches. So I know it can be done.

The gist? Keep up the work. It’s okay if an idea doesn’t work out. If there’s a problem to be solved (and there is ALWAYS a problem to be solved), keep working toward a solution, or at least a better way. Since much of my work along these lines is personal (in the garden, the house, or a plethora of other things) I can remember to be kind to myself when letting go of an idea too.

And, since I have a better time remembering a practice if I write it down, I figured I’d share here. Hoping it helps you, too.
