I can solve Rubik's Cubes. This is the direct result of a 1.5 hour bus ride to and from high school for 4 years. There are tons of different ways the Rubik's Cube can be scrambled. However, the way to fix it is always the same. There is a set of patterns that I can always use to always fix the cube back into position.
Sometimes, I try to treat my life like a Rubik's Cube. No matter the position i try to use the same fixes for different situations. I'm not sure this is the best. As I thought more, I realized that I'm not put in cookie cutter situations that have generic answers. Each situation..each trial...is specifically for me and for a certain purpose. When I realize this it makes it more imperative that I stay still and calmly wait for an answer to be shown to me.
