Motivational Power Quote
When You Make a Mistake Admit it and Move On
“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes.
It is best to admit them quickly and
get on with improving your other innovations.”
Steve Job, Apple Co Founder
As I see it . . . . . . .
When you make a mistake admit it and move on
One of the worst things that you can do is to try to cover up a mistake. A mistake that’s not attended to seems to grow legs and take on a life of their own.
The mistakes that we try to sweep under the rug and try to cover up can have an adverse affect on our thinking, our time and our resources. We will spend (waste) far more time trying to cover up a mistake them we would in admitting it, dealing with it and moving on.
Mistakes are no pleasant to make or to admit it, in reality we all make them. If you’re pushing you business or expanding you customer base your stretching your business to a new levels and mistakes happen.
Never allow a mistake to linger, admit the mistake as soon as you can and deal with the condition.
Mistakes are part of the business environment and part of life. When you make a mistake admit it and move on.
