Full disclosure - I’m not ”coding with a view” - I’m in fact freezing my ass off, dragging the laptop with me off road, to get some sort of content for the ol’ gramerino during the vacation. So see it as some sort of ”we’ll be back shortly”-screen
Life is all about making the decision you feel is right in the moment and learning from the experience that the decision you made results in. There is not perfect way of doing things, there are only proven ways and methods of doing things, and sometimes even those are the wrong methods for you situation. Whatever you decide to do, stand by it with all of your heart and don’t let doubt or fear of failure push you down the wrong path. You are going to fail, you are going to make the wrong decisions, but all of that brings with it a lesson that will tell you what to do the next time and most of all, that lesson will bring with it an opportunity to grow stronger. But that opportunity is based on embracing the pain that comes with failure, doubt and criticism. You have to embrace it and let it mold you into a stronger and more capable person than you were before. What you might see as a painful part about life, that is the certainty that you will make mistakes, I see as the beauty in life. The beauty that you are not alone, everyone makes mistakes no matter how old or how experienced. The beauty in the powerful lessons that every mistakes brings with it. The beauty in the opportunity to grow into an incredible human being. It all comes down to perspective. Do you want to see everything for the negative parts that it is sure to come with, or the positive parts? And your perspective is based on your focus, the focus that I just questioned, on positive or negative. Perspective is gained only by being open minded, being able to accept the reality of being wrong, no matter how sure you are that you are right and even if you truly are right. Defining whether if being right is more important than being a good friend, co-worker or leader. Because what does it matter if you’re right if the person that is wrong doesn’t understand why, can’t see it from a different perspective or even if they get hurt? Decide on the kind of person you want to be and let that be a mold in your mind in which you fit all the decisions you make in life.
