Don’t Give Up!
Tuesday morning my brain was completely fried due to the complexity of a piece of virtual #facilitation.
“My, oh my, this is tortuous!” I thought.
Then came feelings of self doubt, fear, anxiety and a resignation that I simply couldn’t get my head around what was expected. I became a little grumpy….(well maybe a big bit!)
Consulting with a few other virtual facilitators, they felt exactly the same…(even more scary, and now even more grumpy too!)
Then I persevered a little more.
And still even more.
With a little more effort, a little more #patience, a little more #persistence and some practice & experimentation thrown in too for good measure, eventually…it started to make a little more sense.
By Wednesday afternoon, I’d cracked it! I was overcome with a huge sense of relief and started dancing around the living room.
This morning, as I get back online for the last rounds of the virtual facilitation, I am actually looking forward (and just a little excited too) about the day ahead. And I’ll have a bit of fun too!
Being taken of your comfort zone into your stretch zone, can be very painful at times – I can testify of that! Yet, strangely it also brings a great sense of accomplishment, once you achieve the goal.
Have you been stretched recently?
