Yesterday’s Work

von Felix

When you are confronted with some piece of work of yours that has aged a bit already, something like Gosh! Was I so stupid back then? might go through your mind. It can be embarassing and you might try to push these thoughts away.

I am not sure whether that is the right reaction. Maybe you should embrace these moments and pause to reflect on them. Sure, you want your work to be perfect just as I want mine. On the other hand, if I looked at something that I did one, two, three years ago and did not spot something that I would do different, would not that mean that I have not been learning anything since that point in time?

Do not judge yesterday’s work based on today’s ability. Do not feel bad about it. Instead, admire your progress. It is not that your work became worse, it is you who became better.
