When to change the plan?

new_direcrtionHonestly I wouldn’t be the best person to answer this question but I do believe my intuition and my heart never lead me wrong. I’m working on a project at home which I’ve spent months researching and planning. Once I begin to execute my plan and experimenting with it, I got it right once, and every other time it was a disaster (lets just say it’s a consumable product :-) ). I thought to my self, “I can’t do this!” I tried again and again, another disaster…lol I refused to give up and chalk all that time up to nothing. So I started looking at ways I could salvage all the knowledge gained during the process to still be successful. Once I took that journey it led me in a new direction for my project. This new direction is related to my original idea, but it’s simpler to get off the ground and allows for more growth opportunities in the future. After all that rambling here’s how I sum it up:

“I starting working on an idea and spent months researching, then failed. That failure led me to an even better idea that has more room for growth. The piece I failed on is now Phase II of my master plan. It wasn’t all for nothing…”

    Do as I do and always keep the KISS principle in the back of your mind. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KISS_principle. Also failing only makes you smarter – it took me a hott minute to get my concept down!

    It might be fun to be around other people your age for awhile, and it might help you ease out of homeschooling. Going straight from homeschooling to college is a shock.

    Everytime you fail, try again, but make sure you analyze the gains if any from your experience. If there was none, rethink about retrying if you feel it's a lost cause and maybe try another area.

    Till then,

    Generally not. Most employer plans do not permit a rollover until you terminate employment (and they are not required to allow it). Read the specific plan provisions for your plan.

    The mouseover pushes out the section header titles, but great point – those sections are all virtually the same. … We’ll re-think this part.

    Unfortunately, being outside of your open enrollment window the insurance carrier is not obligated to allow any changes to your coverage so you would remain on your plan until next year.

    If you don't have to have the drawings for buidling permits or other legal reasons, many contractors can make the modifications without a formal revised set of drawings.

    At least you are trying to learn from your failures. Many people get overly discouraged by failure and end up quitting altogether. Sometimes unexpected obstacles do come up. It is up to you to figure out if those obstacles are too great to overcome or if you need to adjust your plan accordingly.

    Where do you go to sled? The only good place we’ve found is up at UAF, but I almost ran over a baby last time we went so I think we may need to find a less populated spot.

    One interesting idea I'm not sure if it's being used is to watch the nameserver query statistics to "pre-report" comment spams. My experience running MT for a few sites is that the comment spamming comes in vast, crushing waves that create load spikes. The system could then auto-list URIs for moderation (rather than outright blocking). I suspect this would be quite effective.

    A really excellent project I think! One of the scariest things for a developer new to the FOSS world is not really knowing the conventions and established workflows for getting involved…at least it was for me, and still is to some degree because I forget things quickly nowadays 😀

    I love the repeated blatant acknowledgments (in the hearing video) that interdiction/supply side policy has no value in reducing drug harm in the united states – that they need to do this for other reasons. Not that its exactly a great thing to hear your own government admit, but we've all been screaming for years that they dont do this to "help" us, and its about time they own up to it.

    You definitely learn from your failures, without failures, how can you make progress? At lest that is the way I see it.

    I thought “NEW NASA” would work too. In any case the dearth of sensible headlines (they really are backwards) tells you how much the media cares, and by extension how much people care.

    Tunney told the business owners Thursday that he understands the woes of displaced businesses, having twice had to move his Ann Sather's restaurant on Belmont Avenue. He said the businesses would either "find a way to either get back in the development or find another opportunity" to move elsewhere.

    Yes the test was pretty accurate for me as well besides the fact that I would like to work for myself, adn be in full control. Though it did hint at it stating I am the type to seek power and be a leader. Interesting…

    Making plan is always a good habit. It help anyone to work hard for achieving their targets. But if he/she get fails easily can move to next plan. This is a really excellent read for me. Must admit that you are one of the best blogger I ever saw. Thanks for posting this useful article.

    I think the time to change the plan is when you have exhausted all options that are feasible. Until then, keep trying new ideas as you never know when it might click.
