Need advice on filling out a winning bracket for March Madness? Are you single and having trouble finding the right person? I don’t have time to answer all of your questions for either of those subjects so instead I’m going to give you some tips that apply for both. You can decide for yourself if the advice is for your bracket or your love life.
Tip 1: Accept that the odds are against you 
First things first, you need to accept reality: you don’t stand a chance. Accept that there are experts out there who have spent many long nights in bed gathering statistics by watching and studying game tape.

The human element involved makes everything unpredictable so prepare for the worst, but get ready for a wild ride full of upsets and Cinderellas. Tip 
2: Nobody is perfect 
You don’t have to get everything right in order to be a winner this spring. In fact, the odds of everything being perfect are stacked against you and unrealistic to begin with. The media makes you think that everything has to be perfect but very few people ever actually achieve perfection—and they probably cheated in one way or another. This is real life and it’s different. Look at your parents: do they have everything perfect? No, and they have been doing this a lot longer than you. Give yourself a break and just choose what makes you happy. Also, don’t pick any 16’s: they have never won ever and it’s a federal offense in most states.
