Tips posts... Everyone loves 'em. The whole Interwebby world is out there looking for advice! But the problem with other tips posts are, they've mistakenly tailored themselves to actual subject matter--
Ha! Can you believe that? Bloggers actually taking rehashed common sense and applying it to a specific situation... Making you have to search all over the Internet Highway for the mediocre advice from complete strangers that you require!
Well, no more! Now there's the Internet's only post that gives you invaluable, completely vague and cliched tips older than your grandmother's girdle, which you can apply to virtually any situation no matter what the topic!
Relationship problems? These are your tips! Blogging questions? These are your tips! Looking to learn how to milk a miniature goat?...
We got your tips right here!
Once you read these tips, you'll return to them again and again, for all your future non-specific, pseudo-wisdom needs!
Okay, do you have your problem topic in mind? Great! Then let's go!
- Examine the situation from the point of view of the other party/s involved. If necessary, use mirrors or analytical tools. Either change, or don't change something, depending on what you discover.
- Remember to be true to yourself. If it doesn't feel right, don't do it. Unless you really, really have to. Or take a break and try again.
- A little time and trouble up front will be appreciated later by you, or maybe someone else.
- Connect with others who have faced your challenges. Find a group or organization and ask questions, unless it is a mime troupe. Because that is a waste of time.
- Substitute olive oil.
- Take it one step at a time. Break it into parts. (Unless breaking it into parts would turn it into kindling. In which case: don't.)
- Don't get discouraged if you don't see results right away! Remember, anything worthwhile isn't instant. This includes both coffee and karma.
- Make a list of what you want to accomplish. Then check it off, one by one as it's completed, unless the problem includes a lack of writing utensils.
- Believe you can. Even if you'll never, ever, ever manage it because you're such a loser.
- Always remember, practice makes perfect. And if it doesn't, just shut up about it. No one needs to know.
There! Don't you feel more informed? More enlightened? More On The Right Path?
