This week at work I had some wins and losses. That’s just past of how it will go, but if you keep persistent and consistent there will be more WINS than the losses.
I was kicking myself because I overlooked a very important email that required a status update to our entire department!!! Even the VP on the call… and guess what?
Didn’t have my slide in the deck!!! But I gave a brief update anyway. I was so upset! I hate to miss things that are required of me.
Here is what I did…
Quickly chatted with my boss on the matter. Went back to the original request and saw the detail that I missed— in other words I owned my oversight of this task!! I still provided a brief update anyway on the fly. I reached out to the organizer to apologize for my oversight. Began preparing the slide asap to add anyway and be ready for next months look-back.
Moving forward throughout the week, a win for me was supporting my team on other tasks, stepping in and up where required and offering to help others learn some stuff. This way we all are effective. We can all collaborate.
I reached out to a colleague that needed a checkin!
Went into the office twice this week to get stuff done and connect with workers on site.
I helped to draft the October newsletter for my Business Resource Group called “Inspire”. It was released just in time today. I also shared it with my team. They loved it. ♥️😊
The point of all this?
Focus towards going after more wins. The losses are important too because we LEARN from them and we learn how to do better. We don’t stay stuck in a loss. We move towards creating more wins. It takes grit! Intentionality! Persistence! Protectiveness!
This is what we do with wins and losses! We keep learning and relearning and producing better results!
I am upset by the loss. But I didn’t let this one thing push me back. In fact— it pushes me forward for what’s next. A mindset for growth and to obtain greater! That’s what the desired result is.
You can do it! Every day is just another opportunity, so pick your head up out of the loss, learn from it and prepare now to do better.
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 2 Corinthians 4:17
