Failing myself? Failing others?

When your personal doubt impacts the way you see development

Rashida Merchant

Rashida addresses the danger of bringing outside emotional baggage to a project site. Watch Rashida discuss the alienation of looking at events through a "personal failure" lens.

Something to think about

  1. How might your personal ambitions for your community/project conflict with the circumstances/realities that your community faces?
  2. If you feel as though you've failed at a particular aspect of your project, can you take a step back and examine what happened? Can you try observing the events that took place with a different perspective?
  3. Is it possible to gain insights from learning to fail while also making a positive impact within your community? If so, how can this be balanced?
