Never Assume Anything
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

No doubt you have heard of the term "Never assume anything, it makes . . ."

Or from the Steven Seagal movie Under Siege 2 "Assumption is the mother of all . . ."

I was recently reminded of this when I embarked on the 30 Articles In 30 Days challenge here at Street Articles. When I signed up for it on May 4th of this year I thought it started then. Somehow when I signed up for it I missed the part where at the top it had the deadline for signing up by May 10.

Thinking I had about 8 articles up for the challenge as opposed the 1 other than this one as of this writing. But I still have time to get the goal of submitting 30 Articles in 30 Days. And I will make it.

What I should have done was asked to make sure of the start date. And then write the articles and save them until the start date and then submitted them. Although it might have overloaded the moderators.

Instead I kept writing and submitting until I got an email about how it was 3 days into the challenge. I PM'd one of the owners of Wealthy Affiliate asking about what was going on. I apologize for that if it sounded rude.

But getting a lot of writing done was probably a good thing. I got some work done, traffic to my sites, and I still have time to achieve the goal of 30 articles before June 10.

To avoid this type of mistake what you need to do is:

  1. Always read the fine print. Although the May 10 deadline was in pretty bold print. If there's any confusion make sure to get clarification. Very few people will dump on you for asking a question.
  2. At work make sure you know your employer's policies. Violating them can lead to unemployment. Don't think that because one person is doing something that it's acceptable behavior. They just might not have gotten caught yet.
  3. Needless to say the same thing goes with the law. Someone might be doing something you're not sure is legal, for example do people always declare 100% of their tips when tax time rolls around? Lie about it and you get caught your tax person and auditor will run you through a meat grinder (figuratively speaking).

So hopefully this helps you. Sometimes we all need a reminder. So go out and make it a great day.
