Well, what I should do is carefully analyze the question, break down the difficult portions to gain clarity on the unknowns, research answers by reading and asking friends or experts, and plan a strategy to address the problem.
What I usually do is procrastinate and dither.
Panic! Joking aside, knowledge is power, so I fact find, find the solution and do my best to follow it. unfortunately it's a process that takes some time...
When you don't know what to do you usually ask what should i do but often an empty mind is the devil's workshop, So even when you don't do anything your mind is still a chatterbox because your mind is asking "what should i do?" So the best thing would be to take your mind to the stage of freedom where it is so utterly calm and peaceful that all questions are dissolved. This comes with practice and meditation. Knowing it you won't be asking what should you do even when you don't do anything.
Cry usually !! or talk to my special friend who always has wise words to help me in most situations X
If you mean what to do occupation wise when you dont know what to do...WELL I get a cook book out and find something nice to cook for dinner or walk the dog !!
This is a pathetic condition and it should not be allowed to arise. It does if one does not know of his resources. Where of, one is God and then His Walis - the authorities given the status of close friends, and then Quran - the word of God guiding man to salvation and allowing knowing, the not knowing!
In my life, I have got such some plannings to do if I have nothing to do (and you can do it as well) ; they are:
- reading Al-Qur'an (the holy book of my religion - Islam;
- hang out with my friend or colleages;
- watch TV;
- watch some movie from my DVD / VCD player.
- play my keyboard; play some music and/or singing;
- go to shopping mall and have a window shopping;
- go to a place which I haven't ever visited;
- go to the impressive place that I once visited;
- do gardening, take care the plants that I have planted on the land surrounded my house.
- write something on my laptop and then post it to my blog;
- find everyting new in internet;
- go over the thing that I have ever learnt before;
If sometimes I don't know what to do, I will choose one of the planning above to do.
That is my signal that I need more information to process a viable decision. We live in a world of almost instanteous gratification. When it comes to answers, people want them as to come as fast as their computer operates. In pushing that desire, they sometimes miss the logical, commonsense, thing to do. Gather more information as rapidly as possible before you leap. If you are pressed, make the best possible decision you can based on commonsense and logic, with the information that you have at hand. In hindsight, that decision may not be the right one but it still may be a better one than doing nothing whatsoever. WB
Depends what the issue is.. if its emotional I do nothing.. for a while..
If its a circumstance, that you have to make a decision on then, you breathe and make a decision.
Whatever it is you need to sit with the silence and find your answer within...
If I don't, at the moment, know what to do about a particular thing or subject, then I go and do something else for a while that may not require as much action or thought. During the time I am doing something else, I can ponder the problem that awaits my action or decision. If I need information then I determine where to get that info before I act or decide. then I ponder some more. I may call a friend or loved one and accept their input on the subject before acting. I keep myself busy doing things and thinking until the moment arrives that I can decide not just what to do but also how to do it. Then and only then will I commit to an action or decision. The process may take ten minutes or ten hours or even ten days, but I'll get there.
when i don't know what to do, i read, i like to have quiet time sometimes then Ideas will flow in then there will be so much to do....
i go on youtube and watch my favourite videos untill one of them inspires me to do something i do want to do
Good question. Normaly I don't do nothing, and when I do something I think that I have many things to do and I don't time to do all of them.
get a book n read, write a poem, smell the flowers, breath deeply n stretch, most importantly have a conversation with god and be thankfull.
I re-read my favorite book. Not that I'd reccomend it to anyone else, but my favortie book is Treasure Islalnd.
gurl seriouslu get real...what kind of question is thiz now dont take my answer the wrong way but is kind of true.....but i guess the answer is you just dont do anything...but thers always sumthing to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are one of three things one can do:
1. pick up a book, newspaper, journal or magazine and read
2. you can pray
3. you can have a nap.
I am sure you can do one of these anywhere.
What I do is relax! Because I feel that there is too much pressure in our society to be doing and going most of the time. We live in such a fast paced lifestyle and sometimes it's good to relax. So knowing not what to do....just take a breath and take five mintues to relax and then the knowing what to do will come along.
When i don't understand what i must do then there is a simple task for me i on my notebook and start posting hubs or posts to my blog.
This is the best task i do whenever i don't understand what i may do.
If i don't know what to do, I have stay in quite place and relax my self and pray to god and ask guidance form him.
I just lay down and think what has gone wrong and why and then some time later If I don't find myself guilty then I pray and leave everything to Allah after all he is the best planner and judge.
I try to separate myself from the problem.
I find the best way to do this and formulate a good, fair and objective answer is to pretend that the problem belongs to a friend or loved one and think of what I would advise them to do in the same position. It makes it easier for me to be honest about what is really going on and have a little objectivity.
Pray! I believe the Lord has a plan for all of us, and waits for us to ask him what to do.
I just look at my surroundings, and I am realizing some things, it's like I am looking at the same environment with different set of eyes. Maybe this is a sign for me, that i should be more reflective, that i should take life easier and slower.

I'm always curious about how different people go about their writing process. I've been writing professionally for a decade. Yet..I still find myself falling into chaos and struggling to manage my time efficiently. Do you have a strict protocol as far as the when, where, and how of working - or do...
