It's important that you understand several rules of the road as you learn from one's mistakes:
Rule #1: Admit to it right away! Be proactive and seek out everyone who needs to know. Take responsibility. Don't create blame.
Rule #2:Clean it up. Do whatever is necessary to make the situation whole again for those around you. Remember, making a tighter cycle will help you to not make a mess so big that you become bogged down cleaning up after your mistakes.
Rule #3: Learn from the experience. Focus on what worked, while addressing what did not work. Communicate what you have learned to others so they don't make the same mistakes you did. Also, learn from your obstacles, but don't make them so big that they drain power in your ability to move on.
Rule #4: Do not do that one again. Go on with other possibilities. Keep the cycle moving. There is a whole world of new opportunities to examine.
Rule #5: Keep Moving Forward Come back to your goal and continue to move forward. You can't create results if you constantly sit on what has gone wrong. That doesn't mean you don't learn the lesson you need to learn. That's part of the review.
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. -Walt Disney
