Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
You suck at failing!
Also: now I’ve recently won something special, I’m going to be failing epically throughout 2011!! That’s not a bad thing really… :D
This is great! No, seriously! I need to embrace failing more. I am way, way too hard on myself. One thing yoga teaches me is that it’s all about progress, not about perfection.
Sizzle, I’m really hard on myself, too. I love that my Yoga teacher is always telling us it’s about what our bodies are doing THAT DAY. So it’s not like you have to be better than what you did yesterday. Sometimes your body isn’t in that space again. I am trying to apply that to life.
Great post Les… and I LUV the pic of LB! I’m working on something similar for 2011. I’m working on not being perfect. (I’m not implying I was ever perfect to begin with.) But my need for perfection really puts a damper on me accomplishing anything… because I don’t want to FAIL. So I am going to clean the house imperfectly (which is better than not cleaning at all), I’m going to budget imperfectly, be an imperfect employee, friend, and wife. And that is enough.
I too will fail at paying my bills on time. I think I’ll adopt your five day rule though.
I will fail at being organized, but will continue to try.
I will fail at my weight loss plan on some days but try, try, again.
Happy New Year woman!
This is a good list. I like the idea of coming at resolutions ass-backwards. I think I’ll try failing something or another.
