Today… I am not going to stop, period.

November 20, 2007

Okay, today is one of those days.  I am being challenged with everything that I do.  Trying to finish my newsletter – The Performance Navigator – I was dogged with technical difficulties.  Even when I actually finished the article and was happy with the video that I had attached for my subscribers, I ended up fighting with technology.  And, I used to work in I.T. so I’m not easily stumped.  I kept going and did not give up.  I finally got my newsletter out and see that it’s possible that many of my subscribers did not get it… or will not get it since it may be filtered because of some of the code behind the scenes.  Frustrating.

But, this is only a fraction of the things that haven’t worked as planned today.  Another example, is my attempt to start to do some research.  Being behind of course in my day.  So, I’m looking for some research that I put aside on happiness, ironically.  I can’t find it for the life of me…. at least not yet. 

I decided to take a break and write this blog.  Why?!  Because I am not going to let my challenges get a hold of me.  Not today.  Most of the time, I’m pretty good with dealing with bumps in the road.  But, today, I am definitely not going to stop pushing forward.  I may fail but I’m going to keep pushing.

Okay, so I’m sure that you experience those challenging days.  What do you do?  What are your strategies?

I am putting this into perspective.  The stuff that doesn’t quite work today is not going to be that big a deal.  A colleague’s husband uses the phrase, “We’re not folding parachutes here are we?”  That puts it in perspective.

I also treat the process as a game.  I’m going to be challenged today and the name of game is pushing forward and quickly and efficiently as possible.  I need to make good decisions in a timely manner.

I hope your day is just amazing.  But, if it’s not.  I hope you’re going to blast through it and conquer the day anyway.  There’s nothing quite like not giving in!
