What To Do When You Are Screwed Up
We all make mistakes; itís a part of being human and fallible. But if youíre
like most people, you feel terrible whenever it happens. The reason, as most
business coaches and motivational experts will tell you, is that people mostly
just want to do a good job. Studies in the past have shown that while money is a
key factor in human performance levels, being appreciated for talent and hard
work ranks even higher.
It follows then, that when we donít get it right the first time, or we let
someone down, or we donít meet expectations, we feel badly about it. Some people
feel so badly that they block out this emotion, instead projecting the blame on
others so they wonít have to face being imperfect.
