When I have absolutely no idea what's going on, my typical response is "FULL SPEED AHEAD!"
I guess I think it's better to throw caution to the wind and learn things, then to sit around and try to figure things out but never really be sure.
This has bitten me in the ass once before. But I'm bouncing back.
Like Baz Luhrmann said, "Do one thing every day that scares you."
Today is taken care of.
