We all make them: MISTAKES. We’re not proud when we make them either, and I would like to share some insight on the fine balance of learning from our mistakes, or beating ourselves up for them, or not taking accountability for them when we make them.
First, there are all kinds of mistakes. We make little mistakes at work all the time. We make a mistake as little as a typo, all the way up to big mistakes, like giving the wrong document to the WRONG person, perhaps the person whom the document was about, detailing their termination!
Yes, mistakes like that happen. Why do we make Mistakes?? Well, first and foremost, we are human. God made us imperfect, so when mistakes are made, the first thing we must do, is acknowledge them to ourselves, if it was a personal mistake, or to ourselves and the person(s) affected, and most importantly, as difficult as it can be, TAKE ACCOUNTABILITY.
