Effective way of solving a problem
When you are faced with a problem you have to overcome it. Do not run away from the problem. It is only cowards who run away. A better approach is for you have to plan ahead to avoid problems from happening through preventive strategies. For example you can prevent yourself from contracting malaria instead of waiting to be down with it and then seek for treatment.
Travel for a purpose
There are some people who just want to wander about whether they have a reason or not for moving around. They think they will collide with happiness or solutions if they keep moving. Do not start moving to any place unless you have a purpose for moving. You are better off to conserve your energy than wasting it on wandering about.
Why argue with a fool
You can only win an argument if you are arguing with an informed and experience person. You can only argue with a person who appreciates the issues around the subject matter. You will never win an argument if you argue with uninformed person as that person’s argument is not based on anything. Therefore do not waste your time in arguing with uninformed people.
Do not repeat your mistakes
Our mistakes and failures in life teach us a lot of lessons from which we learn a lot. They teach us of ways or approaches which do not work when solving a given problem. The accumulated lessons we learn through our failures enable us to make informed decisions when faced with a similar situation in future. People who have no learnt their lessons continue repeating their mistakes.
