Stretch Yourself

Ray van Hilst Avatar

I’m not a tech person.

I know that surprises most people that know me.

I like technology and use it. But I don’t write code and open up the guts of programs to figure things out.  The extent of my knowledge of HTML has been copying a YouTube video into a blog post…. until now.

The designer who works for me left to take a new job a couple of weeks ago.  He’s a great guy and is helping out but I don’t have anyone else to do coding or update pages until my new designer starts.  But business goes on and guess who’s understudying the role of “Web Designer”.

I’m frustrated.  Stressed.  In over my head.  And guess what….. I LOVE IT!

Now, I’m not going to give up my strategic marketing and communications work anytime soon.  But I feel a bit more prepared to manage the process and appreciate the people who make it look easy.

You see, too many people stay in their comfort zones and don’t stretch themselves.

And I learned something along the way.
