Life sometimes seems to be a “learn as we go” process, or at least it’s that way for me. Sometimes even when we try to look at something from all angles, we still manage to miss something.
When discussing a mistake or bad choice with a friend or associate they sometimes say, “well I could have helped you by telling you about my experience or showing you how to (insert task here).” It’s great to know that I have that person to help the next time the situation comes around again, but it would have been much better to know before hand. Only I didn’t know to ask. I didn’t know I had questions, I thought I had thought of everything. I thought I had it covered.
I’ve also been on the other side of that conversation where my friend says, “I wish I would have asked or researched (insert topic here) before I did that” Sometimes my response is, “Well that is the first thing I would have asked. There is no way I would have gone into it without knowing (insert issue here).”
So those types of scenarios are what inspired me to write this. There are plenty of “how to” blogs and information blogs, but what if there is something you didn’t even know you were looking for?
Our brains all work differently. What we may see as a red flag may be green to someone else, and vice versa. Sometimes it’s nice to see things from someone else’s point of view.
So here I will post questions. I will post things that I don’t understand. Questions I would ask before I did something and why I would want to know those things. I may give you a new angle to look at your situation from. Maybe give you a reason to ask more questions before you make a decision. I want to get your wheels turning.
I will also tell you about my mistakes and decisions I wish I could have done differently in hopes of preventing you from making the same mistakes.
This blog will be all about the questions we either never asked, or asked too late.
What would you do differently if you could? …. It’s something to to think about.
