Work it out


Experience comes at a price – the time, effort and emotion of trying things out and landing like an Olympic gymnast or falling flat on your face. Again and again and again until the right moves are built into muscle memory.

And for some lessons, the big important ones, that’s the only way … living it.

For some people too. They only learn what they’ve lived themselves. It’s a rough school.

Most of the time though, there’s another way.


Somebody else has done this before. Probably someone you know. Probably someone who’s not only worked it out, but can break down the moves for you. Probably someone who can explain the why and the how of the thing.

Or you could work it out on your own.

Skippy strategy: Who do you know who knows this stuff?
