26 Jun Day 177 | Trial. Error. Better. (I’m JUST Getting Better!)
Do you recall the time when you spent hours completing a project only to realize at the very end of the project that you did something wrong and now you must go back and redo the entire project. That has happened to me a few times. It can be one of the most frustrating moments for me. I used to just sit there and stew in that frustration, and sometimes I would wade through my anxiety trying to find alternate solutions or work-arounds as to not have to dedicate another few hours to redo the work. But most recently, I’ve gotten better about this. I figure in the time that I stew in my frustration or try to find short-cut “fixes,” I could just use that time to redo the work (and get it over with). I know. I know. It took a lot of “rising above” to get to that point. But what I tell myself is that this will give me the opportunity to do it over and even better this time. Trial. Error. Better. Trial. Error. Better. Trial. Error. Better. Why do you think I know so much about interviewing best practices? It’s not only because I’ve hired to fill my own positions a ton, but also because I’ve managed a team who has to hire for others over and over again. It is also because I’ve interviewed for positions TOO many times. You learn how to perfect something, not because you are perfect, but because you’ve gotten better and better with each try. Sometimes what seems like failure is merely an opportunity for you to get closer to perfection. But in order for it to work, you have to be willing try again. Trial. Error. Better. You can sit and stew in your frustration or have a pity party for yourself, but it is all just a waste of time because it will not manifest your desires. Your best bet is to get up, dust yourself off, and keep trying. It will not only get easier, but your end project will be better. Thank goodness for trial and error. I’m ready to get better!
