I remember the last time I’ve had panic attacks. We were new to the work, and I knew about it in theory, but did not have first-hand experience with it. This was the first time, but I gave my 100% and researched the heck out of it but the client rejected our work.
I was devastated. As a result, I kept putting off having them check our work again. The project dragged on, and as a result, is delayed by a long time.
Oddly enough, I know that it’s all in my head. That failure in one thing isn’t really a failure if I learn from it and turn it into a success.
I know that. In theory.
I’ve tried to acknowledge the fear. Many times. By calling it out.
Nobody is perfect. You can make mistakes. You’re just scared.
But I guess I still need lots of practice.
