Mistakes happen. We are human and, as such, are not immune to errors. So, when you make a mistake, what do you do? Do you cover it up, or do you involve others who can help you set it right?
If you cover it up, it is still an error that you caused. It is still out there. Covering it up is like putting a bandage on a festering wound. It will flare up again. You will not know where or when, yet the problem will reappear.
If you recognize the mistake and work to fix it, you are doing better. If you need help, bring in the right people. Make sure that those who need to know do so. And let them know and see that you are doing everything you can to make the situation right.
By identifying errors early, and working hard to fix them, you are doing a good thing. When people see that you are willing to stand and own your mistakes, they have more respect for you. Those people would instead work with someone who is honest and takes responsibility than someone who does not.
Trust yourself and check your work. Know that if you make a mistake, there are 7 billion more of us that also cause errors. You are just a member of a massive club. Welcome aboard.
Thanks for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.
