Back at work today after a HUGE week last week, I was acutely aware of the need for focus and organisation as I tried to process the paperwork and get everything done before I head into more schools tomorrow.
Fully focused I set off to create the forms necessary for the next steps, as we come together as a team, to ensure we best meet everyone's needs.
In my haste, I did not thoroughly read, or process the instructions. I doubled up on the work required and spent a lot of time creating sheets we do not need.
It got me thinking...
How often do I have a picture in my mind of what needs to happen that over-rules the real picture?
How often do I skim read, rather than deep reading?
Later this afternoon I was talking to our team leader and my mistake became evident. How grateful I am to learn this early on of the potential duplication.
How frustrated I would have been...
So here I am tonight, reflecting on the benefits from close contact with our team. The benefits of regular check ins, and clarification of tasks is essential.
I really am loving our new way of working, sharing with team members, collaborating, and sharing the journey!
Woohoo... FAIL = first attempt in learning!
I love that I learnt from my mistakes today!
