They are ropes


Crazy as it may seem now, there are some things you don’t know how to do. True … plenty fit into the category of things you’ll never need to do, or don’t want to do, or don’t even know exist. But, between us, there are some that you should know how to do, you want to know how to do, you need to know how to do, and you can’t do.

There are two (three) ways out of this problem.

The (let’s not speak its name) third way is to kid yourself and bluff it out. Nobody wins this game. Assuming that’s a non-starter (right?), you’re left with working it out or asking for guidance. Or, we could call them the hard way or the easy way. Or how about, saving face and being vulnerable.

Either way, when it’s time to learn, get over yourself.

Skippy strategy: They are ropes. Start learning.
