I had originally crafted some 20 odd tips back in July 2014 and I had no idea it would take this long to do this series. On closer revision over a period of time, I realised that there were overlaps between some of these tips. I refined.
In my desire to keep to the original declaration of 20 tips, I deliberated (longer than I thought necessary) about sticking to this plan of 20 tips. Keep going or stop now?
Well, today, I decided it needed to end. My final tip is to “End it when its needs to be ended”. And it makes sense to me because it is in keeping with all the tips I mentioned below, namely that I will :-
- keep it short (Tip #4) (or as short as I can). If it can be done in less time, less effort, less words, then let’s do that. It saves us all time, effort, concentration and space.
- adjust (Tip #6). Sometimes, it is hard to distinguish between adjusting or giving up. Practice makes perfect;
- be honest (Tip #9). Let go when you need to. That’s what makes us human;
- be clear and don’t feel guilty (Tip #12).
I hope you got as much out of this as I did creating this series in the first place. This marks the final piece in a series of
