Falling Down

Posted by: Rod Kurtz on October 16, 2008

Small business owners are usually overachievers and tend to be tough on themselves. While high standards are admirable, many take them too far—being fearful, intolerant, or ashamed of making a mistake. In fact, just the prospect of falling down from an oversight or error can seem to some like a deadly plunge from a mile-high cliff. But more often than not, it’s not really a mile… it’s only an inch.

Accept your inevitable errors and operate with self-forgiveness, and remember that the lessons learned from mistakes are the breakfast of champions.
