Chuckle of the day: I went out to the blog to see what words of wisdom awaited and saw no Thursday post yet. Then it clicked: it's my turn to blog today! Yikes! Well, I thought I was getting my little corner of the world under control. Obviously, I need to work on that some more.
OK, now for those words of wisdom. Wait, they'll be arriving any moment. While we're waiting for those wise words to arrive, I'm going to venture into Alice's area of expertise. (And, no, I'm not being facetious -- I love listening to Alice and always learn so much. So thank you, Alice, for sharing your wisdom and experiences with us. I very much appreciate it!) How about everyone else: what is the best advice you ever received?
I like these:
"If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with B.S." Or, "Fake it until you make it."
Is it working yet?
On the more serious side, I've tried to take these pieces of advice to heart:
"If you resist changing something about yourself, that's the thing you need to change the most."
"There's a lesson in every situation if we are open to it."
"Fake it until you make it," which was actually said in a different context than the same advice above by someone who was advocating visualization. She suggested seeing yourself as who you want to be and feeling the emotions of achieving your goals until you actually get there.
As for writing advice, I think my all-time favorite goes something like this: "This is MY way of writing. Use what works for you and don't worry about the rest..." followed by writing strategies, suggestions, and those golden gems of wisdom that bring aha moments.
And perhaps I should close with an appropriate bit of wisdom: "Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow!"
