Don’t trouble trouble until trouble troubles you

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Take It From Me.”

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve given someone that you failed to take yourself?

This is one of my favorite sayings, not just because it sounds cool. Sometimes I tell it to others, when they are trying too much and going with this in a wrong direction.

I feel satisfied, when I can get things done. Finish a task. Complete a mission. Unfortunately, this sometimes involves troubling some long-forgotten tasks that other people haven’t finished.

What would you rather do:

  • finish a task, but remind others about their part of the task;
  • leave it be, until someone else troubles you?
