When you have a manual, you can just follow the instructions.

Someone else has already done the thinking on your behalf.

You start with step 1, move to step 2 and so on.

But when you don’t have a manual, you have to find the solution.

You have to use your mind.

You have to think for yourself.

There’s no manual for living your best life.

It’s handy for working in a factory, or putting together IKEA furniture, but not for something grander.

You can get advice from others, but they can’t give you all of the steps.

You can read books by experts, but your situation will be slightly different.

So, start solving those problems and get to work.

You don’t need a manual.
