Direction matters in at least diodes, capacitors, one-way streets, and game plans, but it is to the last on this list we write about today.
Being the impatient type I fully understand the temptation to jump into the deep end of a problem without a plan, but, as someone that’s been on the planet for more time than many, I also appreciate the value of a good game plan.
For example, when it comes time to choosing that new pair of speakers or a new set of electronics, how many of us have clear objectives in mind?
I suspect most of our goals are more emotional than logical. I know in my case lust often outweighs reason.
If I were to offer any advice I think it might break down to two very simple questions:
- What is lacking in what I have?
- What am I hoping the outcome of my new purchase will be?
It might sound super simplistic but you’d be surprised how often these two questions go unanswered or, worse, unasked.
