Just a Little Effort…Goes a Long Way

Just a little more effort!!

Just a little effort in what you do in life can truly go a long way. Think about all the effort you place into something you care about and how you felt when you completed it. It just takes time and effort, every little once of effort you place into something, the better the outcome. For example this past week the lawn mower went down, we looked into replacing it and then noticed we could fix it. Instead of taking it to the shop, we decided we can fix it ourselves. It was just the blade, so it should be to hard right!? Wrong!! That blade was on there so tight, that it took days of getting the tools, WD-40, and the new blade. Once we had all the pieces and figured go the old bent blade off, we had the new on in no time. The end result was a $10 blade on the old mower and now it runs like new. End of the story is, that a little effort each day gave us the end result and saved about $100 on the repair cost.

The point of the story is that, if you work at it and keep finding new ways around things, you will get the task you want down. The more effort the better the outcome, does it come out perfect every time, nope, but what does. As long as you place the hard work and effort into something the more likely it will give you the outcome you want. Yes at times as you work on something it looks like it will never get done and you want to give in. Just don’t give in to early or get mad, that does nothing but waste your time and energy.

Many times we get lost in the whole project and how hard it is. When it gets hard, it means you just need more effort into it.  Nothing is impossible for you to do it and with the tools of the internet you can find out how to do anything now. Yes it will take time to do something hard, but once you do it the amount of the achievement is great! Remember that it may look hard right now, but just that little bit of effort makes it easier and in time it will work out and you will feel great!

Placing in that little effort in life is key in this Savage World; that you are no longer just living in, but beginning to own!


Laughing at your Mistakes

Just Laugh

Mistakes, we all make them, in fact you probably already made at least five today if not more.  Lets face it, no matter who you are and what you do, you will make a mistake from giant mistakes to tiny mistakes. No matter what it is, you can make it through, nothing is super bad that it will end your life.

Today’s lets talk about mistakes and how to handle them. With the little mistakes, like forgetting your laptop at home when you need it for work. Then you remember right when you pull in and need to go back to get it. Stuff like that, be honest and laugh at that mistake. Don’t get mad at yourself or at someone for forgetting it, stuff like that happens. Just buck up, drive back home, get the lap top and come back. That easy, trust me, getting mad does nothing but make your day worse.

Now there are some mistakes that are hard to handle. You mess up major thing at your job or you have a friend that you really hurt by doing something stupid. Here’s the best advice, admit to your mistake, say you are sorry, and do what you can to make it right. Don’t hide the mistake and pretend like it didn’t happen. Hiding it only causes lies, which lead to confusion, which leads to hate from the other party.

In the end, owning your mistakes is what you need to do. At the little ones, just laugh them off. Who cares if you get caught locked outside your house in your undies, it happens, no harm no foul. If you make a giant mistake in life, it’s okay, not the end of the world, just fess up and make it right.

Laughing at your mistakes is key in this Savage World; that you are no longer just living in, but beginning to own!
