“Our love of being right is best understood as our fear of being wrong.”
~ Kathryn Schulz
Reading an article in Harvard Business review about what you should do when you make a mistake.
Most of us hate making mistakes.
This is engrained from childhood.
When you go to school and your answer is either right or wrong.
Pass or fail.
I guess that’s why so many people stay stuck where they are.
They’re afraid to make mistakes.
They’re afraid to fail.
There’s a big problem with this mindset.
If you never fail.
You never learn.
If you never learn.
You never grow.
If you never grow you’re doomed to quiet life of desperation never being the person you’re meant to be.
In the article they gave 3 steps to fixing mistakes.
Step 1: Take responsibility.
Step 2: Figure out what you need to do right now.
step 3: Tell people what you’ll do next time.
What’s the point?
I made some BIG mistakes when I launched the Daddy’s Working Podcast.
Too many to list in this note.
But one of the BIGGEST was not telling listeners to subscribe.
I screwed up and I’m going to fix it.
First, if you’ve listened to the show and you haven’t subscribed here’s your chance.
Go to http://DaddysWorking.com/iTunes/ and click the subscribe button.
If you listen using another service, go to the search bar – type in Daddy’s Working, and click the subscribe button.
In the future I’m going to add a CTA to each show asking listeners to subscribe.
That should fix this BIG blunder.
