Why Mistakes Aren’t As Bad As You Think

By Therese J. Borchard

Why Mistakes Aren't As Bad As You Think10:00 a.m. Accidentally pressed “reply all” to everyone in my company, offering sincere condolences to a co-worker who lost her mom three years ago, which spurred dozens of emails companywide on who died, and whether or not the company should send flowers.

Oops.

10:50 a.m. Wrote a premature announcement on a website that I would not be blogging there anymore –which got me cut off from access to the blog.

Yikes!

12:00 p.m. Forgot my towel at the public pool. Had to air off using the hand and hair dryers.

Embarrassing.

5:30 p.m. Showed up at my daughter’s book group on time for once! The mom answers the door and tells me it’s next week.

Really?

That is an average beginning to most days.
