All of our lifetime is actually spent doing over. Hopefully, I do not mean repeating trying to be better, I mean trying things in a new and different way. Often we are forced to do this by a move, job change, death, uncontrolled circumstance and so on. Our self-measure is not so much what we do, but how we do it.
How do we respond? Well, we can only respond the way our life experiences have told us that we can-or is that really true? Explore some other ways to think about something and give a new approach a shot. Ask someone, read something about it, go on line and check it out. Make a conscious choice to NOT repeat a failed method and see what happens.
