It’s not everybody that gets it right from the beginning. In fact, a high percentage of people don’t get it the first time. If you’re one of those people, and you are hesitating on what decision to take, no matter the number of years and a number of efforts you have put in, the best decision to make is to make a U-turn, and go and begin again, but this time on the right path. You cannot continue a journey on a wrong path and hope to get there. Even if you spend one million years, it’s going to be a waste of time.
- The earlier you make a U-turn the better
It is good to start earlier in life, all things being equal. The same law holds for making a 1800 turn when you realize you have made a wrong decision and that you are treading on the wrong path. As said earlier, a wrong decision in life, profession, and career can actually be corrected, though it has its cost, the earlier you make the change, the better. It’s only in marriage you are not permitted to turn back.
- The faster you make a U-turn the better
When you have realized your mistake, that you have taken a wrong route to your destination and successful endeavor in life, the best thing is to make a U-turn at the first intersection you come across, at a very slight opportunity you have. Any attempt to pass by an authorized spot to do that may be costlier. You may want to make the turn in an unauthorized spot in a wrong way, and this can lead to a doom.
- The wiser you make a U-turn the better
There is nothing wrong in starting a question you have solved wrongly again. It’s only a wise person that can approach a problem severally with different approaches in order to arrive at the right answer. When you get it right, you’ll know, hence, you’re supposed to be wise, not to assume you’ve gotten it right, when you are not. Be wise and be truthful to yourself, and make a turn, at the spot you ought to make it, neglecting whatever good reasons people might cite so that you don’t quit. If it’s on the wrong path, you’re permitted to quit. In fact, it is a wise decision to do so.
If you don’t make it right from the beginning, make a U-turn!
