Prepare – Use information. Do your homework and learn as much as possible about all options.
Look – Re realistic. Look for the negatives, and make sure it’s right for YOU.
Appraise – Be both practical and creative. Explore as widely as possible, while trying ideas on to see if they fit.
Non-binding – Be flexible. Leave room for other options, and try new things out temporarily or on the side before
making irrevoccable decisions.
In a word, PLAN!
