Day 86 - Lesson learned

Posted by Alyssa Drake on 4 November, 2021 at 14:55

You know that moment when you realize the decision you made was not the best choice?


As I was manually tallying up the latest newsletter giveaway entries, I realized that this entire step of transferring the data to an Excel sheet (and double checking it) could have been skipped had I set up a Google form at the time I created my newsletter.


Head...desk.


However, it's too late now, and due to that incorrect choice, I've dedicated an entire session that I could have been editing (or writing) to this giveaway. As I'm toggling between the email replies and my Excel sheet, I'm thinking this task is something I could have passed over to an assistant, had I not been suffering from "do-it-myself" syndrome (but that's a whole other kettle of fish).


We'll call this a lesson learned for next time.
