Wink Re: When nothing appears to work...

Well... I don't know what you're referring to when you say "nothing" appears to be working. Waiting is tantamount to doing nothing it seems to me. So if one says... since nothing appears to be working the solution is to wait, this would seem to be the same as saying if nothing seems to be working the solution is to do nothing. That doesn't sound like a wise approach to me. But I know how these kinds of things go.

Depending on what it is that doesn't appear to work, I suppose waiting could work for a period of time. But I think one has to be cautious about that. It can easily become a rut that can be increasingly difficult to escape from. Personally I think a preferable thing to do would be to try to figure out why nothing appears to be working & then do something different, or at least do more of the same thing in a different way. As the saying goes... if you keep doing what you've always done, you'll keep getting what you always got.
