It is a weekly newsletter in which I share insights and productivity tips to help you succeed as an indie maker, as well as weekly reflections on my own indie maker journey.
Let’s talk about failures. I assumed that I failed last week when it became clear that goals wouldn’t be reached. Someone will most likely tell us that we must stick to our goals and strive to achieve them at any cost. In some cases, yes, but in most cases, you need to clearly understand the reason why you cannot move forward. And before you rush, resolve the issue.
In my case, it was a real issue. I know that I have the work, and I need to do my job well. I have responsibilities, and I get paid for them. The solution is to better plan your side hustle activities in accordance with your actual workload.
So, I failed. I accept it. It happens sometimes. It does not mean that you are slower. Obstacles will always exist, but we need to find a way to deal with them. And when we realized it, we needed to get up and continue.
