Being Wrong

october 2, 2006

I'm going to vent. Imagine me shaking my fists. What is wrong with making a mistake? Why do people nowadays fear making mistakes? Unless your name is God, YWWH, Allah, or whatever your favorite deity may be, you will make mistakes! I just have a problem with people who have made a mistake and do one or more of the following:

It just makes me sick! Here is a three step process for people who do the above.
  1. Admit you made a mistake -- there's nothing wrong with making a mistake.
  2. Apologize for making the mistake -- don't over do it. Don't beat yourself up about it. And learn to laugh about it.
  3. Make mental notes on how not to make the mistake again.
Grr!
