Avoiding A Childish Mind
Thinking before you act or avoiding having a thoughtless mind could save your life or time. You don't know how many times I have made a mistake of not thinking before I act. My mom always tell me to think before I act. Here are some tips of avoiding these mistake.
Who, what, when, where, why, and how- If a task is a task that is never done before or is too difficult, go ask yourself some question. Your question should be quite easy to think of and quick to answer. Your think of who in charge of the problem? The answer to this might be yourself or others. What is the problem? That could be you loss something like a key. When is the problem? Before I could answer that question, you need to know why you need to know when the problem started. Lets say an event cause you to back track on the problem date, that will be easy because you will know when the problem started or ended. The answer to this will be the time, such as Wednesday or 5:30 pm. Where is the problem? The answer to this might be your home or school. Why are you doing this? The answer to this might be you need it to open your closet door or it is a requirement. How to do this? The answer to this might be look under the bed or ask for help.
The next question is where the problem? Like a store or a hospital. Why did the problem started? Like it was cause by a flood or argument. Lastly, how it started or how to do to it? That question usually answer your problem. The reason I want you answer all these because you never what event later on will cause you to ask these question. So it never hurt to be ahead of the game.
