Little Achievements Do Make A Huge Difference to Your Day
I really do find that little achievements do make a huge difference to your day. For example, I have managed to add new information to my website without asking for help. This has made me feel really good. I have achieved something not only for myself but for my customers too.
When did you last feel good about something?
So my big news today is that you have click and collect options when purchasing from my online shop and BACs payments for anyone who does not like PayPal. The Bacs payments will save you and I money as there are no fees which is a huge help when we have to refund as PayPal still take their cut from you the customer as well as from me. Bit of a cheek if you ask me. So I am now hoping that I have made life a little easier for everyone.
Today I have been gardening and enjoying having the chickens around to help too. Such a nice day.
Yesterday I felt the same sense of achievement when I went to the shop and spent the day putting out the new collection of fabrics from Lewis and Irene. The are very pretty floral prints. Some are very reminiscent of 1940’s fabrics. By the end of the day they we all unwrapped, cut into 1mtr lengths, half meter lengths and fat quarters too. Of course some are left on the bolt for anyone wanting longer lengths. Unfortunately I cannot put them on the online shop at the moment as I am having problems downloading the pictures. I am meeting with the rep this week and we will sort it out I am sure.
My other news is not so good. It is looking like we may have to cancel the Jenny O’Leary workshops this month due to a lack of demand. Having spoken to Jenny we will be looking at it by the end of Wednesday 4th May. If nobody else books in then I will email out my apologies and cancel the two days. I am rather hoping that we do not have to do that . So if you have been thinking about joining us for one or for the two days please do book it before 5pm Wednesday 4th May.
My next sense of achievement will be if I manage to finish getting the Members page ready. I am having a few hiccups with it but I am sure we will work it out quite soon. The main problem is I have no idea how to use it and am learning by the videos they are sending me. Trouble is I do not understand half of what they are talking about so have to stop the video and look it up. I should be a whizz at it in the end.
How do you feel when you are trying to learn a new skill? It can be frustrating but so satisfying when it sinks in.
I am spending much of my time looking at the little things that I achieve now on a daily basis. Some of it is mundane but when you look at all the jobs you finish in a day it does add up to quite a lot. So we should celebrate them. If you have not tried this give it go. You will feel good at the end of the day.
