Perception is 9/10ths of the world; Mistakes can be fixed

02.23.12 Today’s Tip – Perception is 9/10ths of the world; Mistakes can be fixed

We have gone over taking any kind of small steps before. All progress is progress, it does seem important to review this fact again, and again until it is redundant and repetitive. One step in the completely wrong direction still takes you further then you would have gone without taking a step at all. If nothing else you’re moving. What happens though when it was a mistake that effects you or others around you in a bad way.

Lets say you do go the wrong way now what… Oops mistakes happen. If it involves someone else then acknowledge the mistake. Ignoring it won’t help and makes you look silly. Ignoring the mistake just makes you look like a jerk. Everyone makes mistakes, jerks ignore them. Take responsibility for it. Don’t get defense you screwed it up you fix it, or ask for help. This includes if its only effecting you. Don’t blame others, own the error. This next is really important. Apologize, even if only to yourself two of the simplest words, “I’m sorry.” they are the hardest to say but carry great meaning. One you have done these things its time to fix the mistake.

There will be times when you can’t, if you can though fix it. Better yet, have some ideas on how to fix it. If it is something that is unfixable but you are still trying to make amends you can ask them what you can do to make it up to them. If it only affected you then ask yourself what you can do to make it better. Don’t forget to listen, remember all those active listening blogs we did, utilize them now so you know how to respond. Finally do what you say to fix the problem, doesn’t matter if its for others or yourself once you decide what to do to correct the problem you need to follow through. Apologizing for not taking care of the issue that warranted the original apology falls back into the Jerk category.
