My dad used this phrase yesterday when I mentioned that I was not happy with my blog post.
Yesterday morning I wrote down some thoughts quickly during breakfast that I thought were very good at the time. Later on, though, I felt uneasy.
I like to let things set a bit or read them through several times before I publish them, but yesterday I did not.
First I took 5 minutes and made a small change. Finally I came back later and deleted the whole thing, as well as the links on my social networks.
Almost immediately I felt better.
The saying, “When in doubt, throw it out,” can apply to a lot of things in life, not just blog posts. If you feel uncomfortable about a decision, change it or make it right. Better yet, don’t make it at all if you can.
I know I would have done well in the past to follow this little bit of wisdom.
What is bothering you that you need to “throw out?”
