If what you’re doing isn’t working, do something else! I know that that sounds obvious, but it never ceases to amaze me how often people keep repeating unsuccessful patterns.
Sometimes we do things because that’s the way we have always done it or someone else told you this was the best way. When we think that there must be a better way to do something, there usually is!
It doesn’t take much effort to explore these problems. But the first step is to recognise them, and commit to doing something about them.
