Nice One Curt, Climb, Fall, Think, Repeat, Succeed. This is exactly what I've been going through for the last few months at work. And there are a lot of falls to get just one Climb!
And come to think of it, just now, my 2 year old was throwing a screaming fit past her bedtime, and I had to sit with her and ride it out for half an hour, Climb, Fall, Think, Repeat, Succeed. Nothing was working, except I had to be patient and calm and not waste any energy, and go with her. She's asleep now! Until the next Climb!
And work is just like that. It's a nice way to look at it. What have I learnt from the last 6 months? A hell of a lot. Have I had some falls? Yes! And recently I've been thinking, and repeating, and maybe starting to succeed!
