Fail to Succeed

Lesson 1. Start on time

I zonked out yesterday after having a wonderful dinner with my brother and sister in law and their two beautiful kids. I had spend all day working at their house. The kids came in and we had dinner. My sister in law must have seen I was tired so suggested I stay the night. I briefly resisted but soon realized I was totally exhausted. My head hit the pillow and the rest is history.

You might be wondering what has this got to do with anything. Well I spent all day yesterday trying to complete week 3 of the Quick Start Challenge (QSC) and I have learnt a lot from yesterday. I sat intent for over five hours trying to get things done. I am not a dim person, but no matter how much i tried harder I just couldn’t get my head around it nor could I pass the point I got stuck on. I tried and tried because I really really wanted to win the challenge. Which I will do, but just not today.

Bottom line is I started late.

There is a reason Dean gives us about five days. It helps to actually get familiar with a new system and understand it, so that you can use it properly. I have to admit I did not spend the time. So today I am going to sit back down, understand the system better and apply it successfully.

Lesson 3. Do not rush. Take the time to do it properly.

There was a point that my mind just glazed over, because it was tired and I was tired. I know we are meant to persevere, which I did, but you must understand that there is a point you reach that no matter how hard you push, its time to pause and re-assess before you start pushing on again.

Well, though, I have not completed this challenge yet, I will. The journey in itself is already making me a better person. I see there are many lessons for me to learn. My dad was right. You are never too old to learn.

Keep looking out for my post once i have completed week 3 challenge. Yikes week 4 is also upon us. No problem it all good.

Bye for now.

BIP.  xoxo.
