Have I failed?

Dr. Jones asked me to whip up some proposals for the research I will be conducting this Summer. I agreed to and went about my business. I handed them in to him a couple of weeks ago, and haven’t really heard much. Last week  he said he was going to just make an amendment to the current proposals rather than starting fresh. At first I didn’t think anything of it, but recently I have thought, why didn’t he want to move forward with the ones I wrote?

I know he is busy, and I know he is stressed right now, so perhaps he didn’t want to go through the drafting process with me, and having me write a draft was a good start. There will be plenty of time in the future. However, it is conceivable that the ones I wrote were very bad. I didn’t put a lot of effort in to them, basically just took my thesis proposal and refitted to the form.

Looking at the proposal he submitted I would say it certainly was easier for an amendment rather than a whole new proposal, but it will still be in the back of my mind.

Regardless, moving forward, I need to make sure everything I do is of the best quality I can make it.
