“Sink or Swim”

Tell us about a time when you were left on your own, to fend for yourself in an overwhelming situation — on the job, at home, at school. What was the outcome?


During my life several times I have been left alone in overwhelming situations and circumstances, Yet, I survived based on my training and wits to be able to write this posting.

Focusing on the problem and its solutions and not whether I was left alone to fend for myself, has always proved successful.

I have used the Nike corporation slogan “Just Do It” as inspiration to perform or complete whatever the circumstances were.

So, “just do it!” 🙂

  1. I love this post! I’ve been left on my own; thrown into the the deep end many times in my job! I work well under pressure. Funnily enough, I have a post/poem saved in my drafts called sink or swim, to be published. X
