If you purchase a new electronic device or appliance and don't know how to use it, what do you do?
How about when you are lost? How do you get un-lost?
What about when you are on vacation and you want to go on a.tour?
When you are trying to learn something new, what do you do then?
Or when you need some new strategies to implement something, what do you do then?
We get a guide, don't we? All kinds of guides! We use guides all the time to learn how to operate the new phone, to find our way in a new place, to learn a new thing.
But for some reason we don't always keep the guide on hand. We look at it when we first experience the newness of something, and then we put in the drawer. Sometimes this is okay because we have gotten the knowledge we needed to move forward and practice what we've learned.
But then .... we get a bit distracted or disinterested and our attention shifts, and when we need the guide for a refresher we may avoid getting it out again even though we really need it. At this point, think back to why you needed the guide in the first place. Remember its value. Get it out, dust it off and get your mind set to learn more when you open it up again.
