Over the years, as I’ve been working on one project or another, I’d find myself struggling with disappointment. Not satisfied with my progress, putting undue pressure on myself, and feeling discouraged.
Today, I’m more aware of why this happened.
My ideas might be okay, but the time and effort to get them done were not properly evaluated. And so, I would struggle with disappointment. Always behind schedule.
My advice? Learn from my mistakes.
At the onset, do the best you can to properly estimate the time and effort necessary to complete your goal.
If you’re running behind schedule, re-evaluate — be realistic.
Everything you do is one step at a time. When you get discouraged look back where you started and be grateful for those steps you’ve taken.
