Learning can be very challenging. VERY CHALLENGING.
Sometimes you find yourself in the mud, the thick, and it sucks. You make repeated mistakes, same issues, and it’s confounding, really…troubleshooting, reviewing your process, trying to understand why the errors are happening.
It can feel like a smack down. A SMACK DOWN.
It’s abrupt; it gives one pause. It strikes at self-confidence, belief in one’s own thinking and awareness, and capabilities too.
The way forward?
Deep breaths. DEEP BREATHS. A few seconds pause; maybe even a few minutes. Reset. RESET.
You may even find when you climb out of the mire, you may even discover that things aren’t exactly as you perceived them. Maybe other factors were at play. Maybe it wasn’t even entirely your fault.
WHEW. And if it was entirely your fault? Same process, of course. And WHEW anyway.
