This Dog won't Hunt

Have you ever heard this saying? It's used to describe something that has a purpose, but it just doesn't work as intended or not at all. I know you can relate to this problem.

May be you see some great new item on TV and on an impulse, you buy it. As soon as it arrives and you open the box, your enthusiasm wains. You take this new toy out of the box and you know, you just know that this dog won't hunt. It's all wrong from the get go. It was never intended to perform like it was advertised.

This dog won't hunt. And the reason is, this is not a dog. Without my glasses, I may mistake this for a dog, but ; this dog won't hunt. You can try. You can coax, and plead, and beg, but it will not perform as you expected.

My suggestion to this dilemma is to change gears and get real. You will have to accept this (what ever tool or thing) is not what you need to do the work you thought it would. So stop wasting time and talent and resources and move on.

If you wonder how this relates to the crypto we are eager to talk about, then I will give you some more examples. Examples of questions asked about crypto and expectations from new and sometimes not so new members of the crypto verse.

I see people post questions about "What coin can I buy that will give me 100X return in the next six months"? "Why can't I access my ...... exchange. They always want a password and I can't rememeber my password" What is a seed phrase?

Why do I have to use this 2FA stuff? I have $50,000 to invest, what coins should I buy? I got an Email from my bank and they said if I sent them 1 BTC, they would reward me with 5 BTC. Should I try this?

I try and try, but my charts don't work like they should. They always show what happened and don't show what could happen. What is a lagging indicator?

If you have a dog that won't hunt. Please reconsider what you are trying to do. DYOR. Join a like minded group and remember to never share or post a picture of your password, or seed phase. Never will your exchange ask for this info.

Nothing, nothing is free. Everything has a cost including your ignorance. Be smart and learn 1st before you buy that dog. Just a friendly reminder from a person that bought a dog once and all it wanted to do was chase and eat my chickens.

I will admit also, if you want to learn and earn; take it slow as you start. Come and look at the group here at FNL Crypto. We have fun and we make mistakes, we share, we laugh, and I have even made a few coin along the way.
