Don’t Let a Learning Curve Throw You Off TrackPosted on January 25, 2016 at 12:24 am
I wanted to start off this week with a little Monday motivation. I want to talk about this sometimes pesky little thing called a learning curve. A learning curve is the knowledge that we gain from the experiences that we have. Why is it sometimes pesky? Because a lot of the time, for myself at least, my newly gained knowledge comes from experiencing mistakes.
As most of you know, I’m a wife, a dog mom, a small business owner, a full-time student, and I also have another part-time job. My plate is pretty full most days, but I love working hard so I make it all happen. Sometimes I get a little bit frustrated (okay a lot a bit) when things don’t perfectly flow the first time through. I’m somewhat of a perfectionist and if something doesn’t go exactly according to my plan, I kind of freak out a little bit…
Take my new adventure, Glisten Online Gym, for example. We’ve been struggling to get the back end to flow nicely and I have been going a little bit crazy trying to make everything JUST SO. It got to the point where I almost said, “Forget it. I’m done with trying to make an online gym happen. This is too much of a hassle.” Then I remembered that I am not a quitter. I am a problem solving, hard working, relentless go-getter and this online gym is going to happen no matter how big the learning curve is for me in making it come to life. Oh and update as of Monday: everything is GOOD TO GO…YAY!
All this to say – DO NOT GIVE UP. Even if you screw something up the first go-round (or even the second or third) stay the course! Don’t let a learning curve throw you off track. Instead, step back, assess what you’ve learned from making some mistakes, and implement effective changes that will get you where you need to be.
Now go dominate this Monday!
