Here are some life lessons I've learned from jigsaw puzzles....

* Don't force a fit. If something is meant to be, it will come together naturally.

* When things aren't going so well, take a break. Everything will look different when you return.

* Be sure to look at the big picture. Getting hung up on the little pieces only leads to frustration.

* Perseverance pays off. Every important puzzle went together bit by bit, piece by piece.

* When one spot stops working, move to another. But be sure to come back later.

* Variety is the spice of life. It's the different colors and patterns that make the puzzle interesting.

* Establish the border first. Boundaries give a sense of security and order.

* Don't be afraid to try different combinations. Some matches are surprising.

* Take time to celebrate your successes (even little ones).

* Anything worth doing takes time and effort. A great puzzle can't be rushed

* The creator of the puzzle gave you the picture as a guidebook.
