Yesterday I spoke about the juggling act involved in working and home schooling at the same time. Part of what started me on this line of research was that I keep having this nagging feeling that I’m doing something wrong, or doing the wrong things.
I think I now have it figured out*:
- I doubt my path when I should trust and persevere
- I think a bumpy ride means a bad choice when it just means “getting started”
- I haven’t specialised
- I expect to have “normal” working hours/breaks etc
If I take the view that it’ll take 5 years to build what I need, and those five years will be hard and focused and awesome, and we’ll all be OKAY at the end of it, I can focus and excel.
