For the, I don’t know how many days now, the weather is overcast and rainy. This makes for perfect conditions for assignment writing, and I’m both afraid and excited to hopefully knock it all over so I can finish this university semester. It’s been a tough one. Difficult concepts to grasp and an assignment I can’t seem to move along with fast enough.
As someone who is sometimes prone to perfectionism, in this instance I can’t help but think that to have this assignment done I need to go through the process. I feel I need to process everything before I can even think about whipping up some words to complete it, let alone make it sparkle. I’m rarely the person who can just write. What I want to say and how I’m going to say it requires some processing. I need to get things right in my mind, a clear idea, sequence or path before I can string it all together.
As always, I really want to ensure I do an awesome job. But at the end of the day, it’s just one assignment. This won’t define me or my work.
So on that note, I’ll leave you with a quote I came across last night.
“A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities, and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties.” – Harry Truman
