There are often multiple ways to describe your situation, and some ways are more helpful than others.
Maybe you’re a failure or maybe you simply made a mistake — everyone makes them — and you move on.
Maybe you have to do something or maybe you get to do something.
Maybe the current state of your project is a total mess or maybe the current state of your project presents a massive learning opportunity for you and your team.
At any given moment your situation could be this, that, or the other thing.
The beauty of reframing is that you get to pick.
