Get After It: In This Moment

"The true test of character

is not how much we know - how to do,

but how we behave

when we don't know - what to do."


~ Educator, John Holt



Your action for today
is to think of a recent time
when you didn't know what to do
and reflect if you acted in a way
that is in accordance with your values.

I reflected on two incidents from 2018 and 2020
2018's taught me a lot so that...
in 2020 I proved I'd learned My Lesson.

I can't imagine having a question and not trying to find out the answer. Or I can't imagine not knowing how to do something I want to do, and not finding out how to do it. Another inspirational message!

We all have occasions where we find ourselves stumped with a situation. It's at that time when the head has to work to try and resolve the issue or else back off and call someone that knows more

My morals certainly drive my actions and when I remember instances where I might have acted against them, it certainly teaches me to not do it again.

Thomas, just had a client ask me a question about using SS benefits to buy a home, that was a new one.  Made a few calls.

Hi Thomas- what an interesting question!!  We all have times when we are faced with a situation where we don't know what to do. I like what Brian England had to say.
