I made a mistake this week. The mistake was small but the lessons and observations that came from it were not.
When I realized that I had deleted someone else’s work, my first thought was “Can I get this back?” My second thought was “Maybe I can get it back without them even noticing.” Here, I caught myself.
I had encountered the child version of myself who learned to be a perfectionist from a young age. Everything had to be done right and if something went wrong, I would try to fix it without anyone noticing.
I have grown a little since then. I have learned that mistakes are learning opportunities. The more I make, the more I learn. Instead of pretending like my mistake did not happen, I confessed.
After realizing my mistake, I immediately notified the people affected, apologized and offered to help correct my mistake.
The people involved were happy that I took ownership and gave them a solution to fix the problem.
It also saved me a lot of anxiety because I didn’t have to worry about anyone “finding out” about my mistake because they already knew.
