For the past 18 months, I have learned to master the skill of making desserts in big quantities. It wasn't easy having to do everything without help from anyone. I learned it the hard way. My experiences, both good and bad, have boost my productivity thus helping me achieve a good work performance.
When I started, I remember quite a number of instances when I found myself irritated after discovering that I miscalculated. I had to redo things that set me back. Well, it's only for a few minutes but I get anxious when I am behind schedule. And for someone who works alone, time is valuable and making a mistake is a no-no. It still happens when I work with projects that are new and intimidating. I can't really avoid it. But through these times, I learned to take notes of even the minute details, evaluate my mistake and do some careful planning.
When things get crazy at work, I try to relax although it's impossible for me to do so (considering how organized and perfect I want things to be). I take some time to think and figure out how I can accomplish things according to plan.
