I have been dancing with failure for months… And after some thinking sessions I realize what the problem is.
I got two challenges @work, both were classified as “simple”. Normally, something simple should be solved in the short term. Isn’t it? Well, no. Because something simple is not always easy.
My frustration was based on the inability to deliver on-time. Because that simple mission took longer than estimated.
Now, I’m still dancing, but focused on solving the complexities of the simplicity.
Lesson learned: take the challenge and be prepared, because the others also tend to confuse the simple with the easy.
