Ski makes frequent mention of the Socratic method, a very valuable skill. If you choose to try to apply it, just keep in mind the explanation of how the Socratic method works, offered by its creator in 399 B.C., just before he died: “You ask questions, and then they kill you.”Of course, it is more polite to kill the horse... but you get the idea, right? YOU SCREWED UP! Sorry. I did want to leave any doubt. The good news: no worries. Repent. And get back on the horse. Well, not literally. Pick up the phone and call me. Lets put humpty dumpty back together. It is much easier than you can imagine. Or believe. Yes, you must eat a little crow (do you love all these metaphors? Methinks I have gone a little too far but cannot help myself. Sorry).
"Pride goeth before destruction..." —Proverbs 16:18 (KJV)So, there you have it. Three steps to getting back to the simple (I did not say easy) process of making money:
- Admit you turned left, when you should have turned right
- Admit that someone else can see aspects of your life (business and personal) more clearly than you
- Ask for help
