Day 17 – #Reverb10 – Lesson Learned

17 Dec

Prompt: Lesson learned. What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward?
Author: Tara Weaver The Butcher and the Vegetarian @tea_austen


I think that the best thing I learned about myself this year is that I am successful and good at what I do. I mean I know that I am a perfectionist and work hard, but sometimes through the daily grind and often times constant firefighting I’ve forgotten this about myself. I’ve been at my current company for many years and sometimes I think the work I do is expected and not always appreciated. Being told by those on the outside how well spoken I am and how thorough my knowledge is on certain subjects made me remember, “I am an incredible asset and a successful engineer.”

I will apply this going forward by making sure I always have confidence in myself and my abilities even when things aren’t going perfectly. I need to carry myself with this confidence through long days and present myself this way to other so that they too remember what great things I can accomplish.

    You are totally good at what you do! And other things too! I sooo fell off the Reverb 10 thing. I'm so behind. But, the good news is, I think I found some focus! Now I just have to make it work!
