When I was in the Army I was really bad at land navigation. I spent a lot of time lost in the woods. Until I asked for help and got some additional attention. Here are a few life lessons I gleaned from being lost in the woods.
- Starting out on the right path is always better than going wrong, discovering you’re lost, and then adjusting.
- Running in the wrong direction is worse than walking in the wrong direction.
- The longer you go in the wrong direction the further you end up away from where you really want to be.
- There’s no shame in asking which way to go.
