This will not be a long post. In fact, when I first logged on, I came to create my first Tech and Social blog post. It was going to be all about, how I love Pinterest! I wanted to sing it's praises, for several things. Mostly it's ease of use for the regular "pinner" and all the great features, it has for business minded pinners.
Well sufficed to say, that is not going to be the nature of this post, based on the heading you found it under. RANTS AND THINGS! If you've reached this heading in error, turn back now before it's too late!
Okay. So you must want to hear me rant and rave. If so, that's sad. Sad, but appreciated! Without you there would be no me.
It's 12:28 in the a.m. I should've been asleep. However, I'm awake.
For the past two days, I've been experimenting with some new software programs, for some projects I'm working on .And me, being the Type-A personality that I am, can't put them down. When I'm learning something new, whatever it is, the first few days are the worse. I usually can't put it down.
I'm very hands on with everything I do. I think I learn best, by trial and error. When it comes to the technical side of things, my motto is "It's just a click away." That sounds great in theory, until you realize you've been clicking for fifty-eleven hours! When you're a perfectionist-slash-pessimist-slash-optimist, things can go on forever, until you get them right. It has to be right.
And I'm always optimistic, that in the end, it will be exactly, what it was meant to be. The problem is getting to the end. Not to mention, that I'm very critical of my own work. It's generally okay the first time, but, I just have to "try one more thing, or try it this way or that way". UGH! It can bog you down, especially when I have 15 other things I need to do, as well.
Throughout my years, in the Biotech industry, I would have to remind myself not to get to bogged down, in miniscule details. Which is easy to do, in a field like that, where everything is contingent upon the details. See the conundrum in this?
I know there is someone out there, reading this, who understands exactly what I mean.
But, needless to say, I, have been consumed by it. LOL. However, my labor will not be in vain! Give me a week.
Also, along with the software, I've been working behind the scenes, on some new pages for this site. I really want it to be, all that it can be. I want it to be a place that people enjoy coming to on the web. A place that I, personally, enjoy coming to, as well. And I do. I come and watch the photo gallery spin. #TrueStory.
While we're on the subject, I read an article today about lynda.com., an interactive learning website, that was started by a lady named Lynda Weinman, and her husband, in 1995, and was recently purchased by LinkedIn for 1.5 BILLION dollars. I was very encouraged by that! Surely, she never imagined, starting out, as a teacher and entrepreneur, who understood software, that it would grow to into what it became. But, look-a-there! It has! Hard work, surely does pay off, after'while. You go Lynda Weinman and your husband! I am not mad at ya!
So yes, I come here to rant sometimes about...whatever..but in all honesty, I AM NOT DISMAYED AT ALL. I've always worked hard and pushed myself, to be the best me, I can be. To be, all that God created and intended, me to be. To be all, that grace, has allocated me to be. I encourage each and everyone of you to do the same. Trust God, dream big, and work hard.
Be blessed and encouraged!
Most great people, have attained their greatest success, just one step beyond their greatest failure
