5. Ask for help. You may not have all the answers.

8. Walk away not all problems have an immediate solution. Revisit it later.

9. Learn from your mistakes.

10. Learn when and where to keep your thoughts to yourself.


  1. Learning when to apply #2 and #8 is important. When to be persistent, when to walk away, and for how long to walk away. It's part process, and part instinct. I don't have it under control myself, but the theory sounds good. :)

  2. Being persistent can be being a pest but you should never stop trying maybe alter your approach. Walking away...I'm pretty weak at that one too but I keep trying. It's emotional. A few favorite quotes "If you love something set it free, if comes back to you, it's yours if it doesn't it never was". Jonathan Livingstone Seagull, a great book by Richard Bach. I like "Be yourself no matter what they say", Sting song. Important to be true to yourself.
