“Don’t Pay This Forward”
f you’ve been caught falling short in some way, whether it’s failing to turn something in on time at work or something as small as not picking up after yourself at home – there’s often an inner urge to take the guilty feeling and pass it along to someone else.
Don’t do it. It never creates what you want.
The best thing any of us can do when we drop a ball is to pick it up and own it completely.
“Oops, you’re right. I missed that. Thanks for pointing it out. I’ll take care of it right away.”
People respect the person who can take responsibility without rancor.
