I’ve been transitioning from a sick person to a healthy one! 🙂
You may have missed my insightful banter, I am now an author of a book! not eBook, this one of those you hold in your hands.www.3StepTransitioncycle.com
And a few chapters in some anthologies and such…
But my purpose for today’s post was inspired by the awful mix-up at The Academy Awards! Most everybody knows what I’m talking about!
It started me thinking about when we make a mistake. What do we do? I made a huge mistake?
I had 25 posters made of an event-proofed it beforehand…a bill and the posters arrived. First thing I noticed- no date that event will be held!
I could have gone to my Director and said “oh no” what we will we do now? WRONG!
*Whenever you make a mistake rather than dump it in your boss’ lap…Instead, tell them the problem AND suggest a solution or implement your solution and you may tell your boss after.
In my case, I told of the problem and the solution as there were finances involved and I needed her to approve.
The bad posters were “repurposed” to make our own signs and ordered 25 more signs including the date of the event!
*What if you made a mistake in your business? Any program/workshop/event that you do, you are the employee as well as the boss, if you are a solopreneur. like me.
Ask yourself these 3 questions:
- What went right?
- What didn’t go right,not wrong-that can be very depressing! Most people are the worst self-critic. You’ll hear that little voice-“you can’t do anything right”…You’re always a failure…and that “Negativity Chorus” drones on and on…Stop! Thank you (those negative voices) for sharing and move on!
- What will I do differently? (What have I learned and course-correct)
That learning will help you the next time.
What have you learned from your mistakes?
