Two Lessons I Learned Working at Home

Published on

At the beginning of the month, I shared my goal of 2011 to Fail Forward Frequently while working at home. I am proud to say I am a success! I have switched my mindset. It’s all about trying new things, new directions, and attempting to learn new things without worrying about failing at them. It has been totally liberating, and I feel less stressed and anxious. It’s about the activity, not the results. When I was so focused on results, I would quickly become discouraged. The more I failed, the more pressure I would put on myself to achieve. The more failure I would have, the less I would do. Now that I am focused on the activity rather than the outcome, I am living my life with a new calmness. I am learning from each failure, and I am celebrating it. I have not felt discouraged once this month. When you work at home, you can spend a lot of time alone. It can be easy to become discouraged and to stop working, after all no one will see you. I challenge you to focus on the activity more than the outcome. Give it a try. There is a lesson to be learned from everything you try and fail at. The other lesson I learned this month, was that it wasn’t always about failing at an activity. Sometimes I just wasn’t doing the activity enough, I wasn’t devoting enough time to ensure I had an opportunity to be successful when I was working at home.
