If you’ve read this blog in the past, you’ll know that I view many of the situations our culture terms “failures” as absolutely fantastic opportunities.
Situations where we have had an outcome opposite to the one we want are chock-a-block full of data.
If, following a “failure”, we put our analyzing hats on, we can discern patterns and triggers that lead to the unwanted outcome. We can then predict our behavior ahead of time based on this information and devise strategies to encourage, or even force, different behavior in future.
I work at home, and late morning, it starts.
Every time the words don’t come. Or I have a task to do that I don’t enjoy. Or I’m bored or lonely.
