Life Lessons I've Learned from Horses

1.  No matter what the problem is, keep going forward.

2.  It's important to have a Plan A and a Plan B, and sometimes a Plan C.  And equally important to accept that someone could lose a shoe at the last second and Plans A through C will go out the window.

3.  When you are struggling with something, taking a day off to do something more fun and enjoyable can be more productive than continuing to struggle through it.

4.  When you aren't sure what to do, treat the issue conservatively and give it a few days.

5.  Sometimes "bravery" just means fighting the instinct to run like hell.

6.  It is possible to do something the wrong way for a long time, without making it impossible to do it the right way in the future.

7.  Safety in numbers is a real thing. The right friends can get you through just about anything.

8.  Getting frustrated or angry will not get you what you want.  Being clear about what you want will eventually lead to the right results.

9.  Success is not linear, and a set-back or a mistake does not equal failure.  (I've said this before, but it bears repeating. I should probably have this written down in several places.)

10.  A sense of humor always helps.
