So in the spirit of #Workingoutloud, today I'm doing something really scary. I'm having a go at redesigning our landing page. My heart is pumping as I change font/colours/texts to make this page more visually appealing; then I DELETED all my changes.
It's going to be a collaborative approach & of course, my fellow colleagues will be helping. I also tested the web copy with IT & Change people who confirmed that indeed, they want support when it comes to tech #adoption & change. So copy is good. That's good to know.
I mucked about with the program that it sits upon and I always like to experiment and try things out but it's scary when it's a published page. This is one where I have to defer support in fear of breaking it. #WOL means at times admitting that this is not your expertise.
However, then you always want to go back to it. Like a scab, pick at it, edit something, change something. It's the feeling I'm fighting now. To keep going back to it when you just KNOW that you'll stuff it up. Argh. I'll wait. I'll go get a coffee; do something else...
We all feel like this in our work when we're doing something new, different, maybe beyond our skill or expertise; it's hard to admit that you don't know what you're doing but you want to do the best job that you can. It's knowing when to seek out help & being specific about it.
Makes me think how many people in work are bumbling along & doing best they can but maybe not so open in sharing these concerns, questions, uncertainties for fear that they're found out to be a fraud? Working out loud helps us overcome these & accept we don't know everything.
Right. I'm not going to go back to the landing page bc I KNOW I'm going to break it. I've flagged to speak about it at our team meeting. I'm putting my hand up for help. I've decided.
In the end, I just wrapped it up with this video #wolweek #workingoutloud
