What To Do When What You're Doing Isn't Working


Try to generate at least three ideas. If you have only one idea, it may turn out to be a trap. If it doesn't work, you will still be stuck. If you have only two ideas, you may be faced with a dilemma regarding which one to use: a false either/or dilemma. If you have at least three ideas, you have more freedom of choice. Once you have a number of ideas, try some out on a small scale and see what happens. You won't really know if an idea will transform your situation until you try it. If one idea doesn't work, try another until you find one or more that works. In the process, not only will you deal with your problems; you will develop some new skills.
