Do any of you read Kristen Lamb's blog? She always give me a much-needed kick in the pants. (Click here to visit Kristen.) Today, she talked about "dips"-those low points before you succeed.
No, not that kind of dip. But man, that looks delicious.
I particularly appreciated this:
"The only way to get out of ever dealing with dips is to just drift along on the tides of mediocrity and ambivalence. If we are experiencing dips, it means we are still pressing for something better."
I needed that today, Kristen-thanks!
Whatever you guys are doing today, please join me in doing it with enthusiasm. Especially if we fail. If we're failing, it's because we're trying. I want my kids to see that, too. I don't want to raise daughters who are afraid to try. So, as un-fun as it is to fail, I'm going to try to embrace that more often.
Today's fail? Photography. I tried out some new settings today and they looked kind of crappy. But...I think I learned something at least. Hopefully my shots will look better tomorrow.
What did you fail, I mean pre-win, at today?
