My Own Experience on Correcting my Own Upwork Work

Correcting and editing your own work can be very frustrating for others especially when you discovered along the way of editing your work, there are many mistakes and things to be changed. But for some, such experience is a learning process. It is a key factor of improving one’s knowledge, skill and ability.

For me, correcting my own work is fun. I enjoy and love editing my work. And I think, it is because I am a perfectionist. I want everything if possible to be perfect.

Be Brave. Go ahead make mistakes.

Honestly at first, I am afraid of committing mistakes thinking that “what if this is not the right things to do?” But now, I have accepted the fact that everyone have their own flaws. Everyone can commit mistakes even how hard we try not to.

Yes, I still worry every time I fail but I have learned to overcome and accept it. I always remind myself that “if it’s for me, it’s for me. If not, then it’s not for me.” But, I never stop on trying and doing my best to accomplish a certain thing.

High Standard!

Last week, my employer gave me a task on doing a few changes on the ad upgrades I did. I wasn’t surprised nor feel worried about it since every time I submit the output of my work, I always include messages such as “Please leave a comment.” or “ Please let me know if there are things that need to be changed.”

I always expect these because every person has their own standards. And that standards differs in every person.

It gives me peace of mind knowing that my work is good or better after a correction has been made especially when my client gives compliments. It gives satisfaction, a feeling of success and great achievements even it’s a very simple thing to do.

The time needed to finish the editing process of one company would depend on the following factors:

  • speed of internet connection.
  • the research process itself.
  • quality or size of the image found on website.
  • number of data to be edited.

For the correction I made  last week, it took me one and a half hour to finish the task. The corrections that I made were for ads displayed on BiZiDEX, business indes:

  1. Replacing blur pictures.
  2. Adding more information about products and services.
  3. Changing video.
  4. Uploading new quality pictures, to where pictures were missing.
  5. Adding descriptions on images.

As a whole, the task would take 7 hours to finish. That includes the ad building, ad upgrades and the editing. It’s very essential that correct data are entered to the website. So this time, I made sure that the data that I entered are correct and the pictures are clear. This means that the more accurate your work is, the more time is saved and the more work you can do in a day.

After reviewing and making sure that everything is good, I then send it to my client. That’s it. The whole editing part is finished. Mission accomplished! Next time I do the work, it will be better because I learned from my mistakes and know what to do to avoid those mistakes.

Always bear in mind that it is very important to check your work before submitting it to the client and any form of work needs special attention to detail.

In everything I do, i set high standards.
How will your life change,
if everything you do, you’ll demand high standard from yourself?
