Two Wrongs Don’t Make a Right

Have you heard yourself say this:

“I could have avoided this mess if only I didn’t [Insert mistake here].”

I catch myself doing this at times and I know it’s bad. But in order for us to improve in life, this attitude needs to go. We should move on from our mistakes and focus on learning the things we did right.

It’s more beneficial to know the right thing to do and do it more often than know the wrong thing you did and avoid it next time. If we look closely how we deal with problems, we can see the difference of these two perspectives:

AskingWhatsWrongVsRight

There’s only one way if not few to do something right and an endless number of ways to do it wrong. You can’t watch all the failure videos in basketball and then expect to become an effective basketball player. Nor should a dancer for example fall down in creative ways in order to learn “what to avoid in dancing.” It just won’t make any sense. All you are doing is getting yourself distracted by putting more ideas how to fail in your head. In the end you’ll end up terrified to even take the step in trying for fear of making another mistake. You’d say “Oh no, this is the part when usually fail… see? I knew it. I’ll never get past this.”

Focusing on the wrong things we did is NOT productive. I’m not saying we should never assess our mistakes and failures, but if it becomes our priority in life, we’ll never be able to unlock the excellence in us.

Dropresize has a new home

I let the old website expire so what you’ll see in dropresize.com is some japanese chat advertisement.

And…

you can now visit Dropresize at its new (simple) home in dropresize.semigik.com.

There is still no development progress though. I don’t know how soon I’ll be able to get back on it. If donations come, Iwill of course resume development right away.

Please contact me at dropresize@semigik.com for any concerns about the software. 🙂

Coming Soon: New Version of Dropresize!

Hello everyone! Dropresize development has been in pause for a long time now, and there are so many changes needed to do already. I know for some this is OK, but for others, I know you have been expecting your requests to be done.

With this, I have decided to rewrite the software from scratch. It will take longer to finish than producing an update, but I will do this in an attempt to make a much cleaner code and prevent hopefully some bugs from occurring right from the start.

You may continue using the existing version of Dropresize while the new version is still under development, and the existing version will remain free forever. Donations are still highly appreciated though so no problems there. 🙂

Let’s all look forward for a newer and better version of Dropresize!

Coming Soon: New Version of Dropresize!
