Challenging Tasks are a Part of Life and Business
Tips to Help You Take On Those Tasks Head-On
You are going to face challenging tasks, either you take them on, or you avoid them. I will share a few tips on how to get through challenging assignments that will empower you.
I once had a job that included data entry. This was a challenging task! I had to figure out what the data was because the paperwork was usually a mess. I had to figure out the product and place it under a suitable category, and sometimes the same data had to be entered differently, depending on the customer. Not a straightforward job and mistakes were costly. When I first started, I felt a lot of pressure.
I thought, How can anyone do this job? I couldn’t believe how difficult it was, and it was not worth it for what I was getting paid. No way, I thought, I’m getting out of here. But at the time, I had no other choice but to stay and do the best I could.
The first few days were awful. Each entry was a pain, going back and forth, asking hundreds of questions a day. I thought I’ll never get through this. Then, as the days went by, I started to speed up.
