Day 219 – Mistakes and Saying Thank You

We forget our passwords. We pay too much to go the gym. We think we’d be happier if we lived in California (we wouldn’t), and we think we stick with our first answer on tests (we shouldn’t).

Because it doesn’t make any difference if you’ve made an insignificant mistake or a serious mistake, what you need to do is take ownership of the mistake, admit to it, apologize for it, fix it, and not repeat it.

Realize we will never stop making mistakes, just like our brains never stop learning. There will be situations we have never encountered before, that aren’t even remotely like situations we have encountered that helped us learn but we will have to deal with them as they come.

Like not knowing the proper words to say Thank You.

The following should help:

The six most important words: I admit I made a mistake.
The five most important words: You did a good job.
The four most important words: What is YOUR opinion?
The three most important words: If you please.
The two most important words: Thank You.
The one most important word: We.
The least important word: I.
