If It Doesn’t Work, Move On

A bag on a desk next to an opened book.

If whatever it is that you tried doesn’t work, don’t dwell on it.

Try something different.

Experiment more.

Approach it from a different perspective.

Pursue something else.

Redefine your goals.

Wishing things would have turned out differently, that you had a bit more luck, or a better strategy is not helpful. Move on and focus on the next bit instead.
