From Error to Opportunity

Mistakes happen. Errors happen. Miscalculations happen.

When a mistake is made, there are four questions you need to ask:

  1. Has there been enough training to prevent this?
  2. Was it intentionally done wrong or malicious?
  3. Did it happen from carelessness or laziness?
  4. Has a lesson been learned and corrected?

It is easy to place blame, point fingers or drop your head when a mistake made. Those responses are sure to turn one mistake into two mistakes. If you want to right the mistake or error, find the cause and correct it.

We aren’t perfect, but we should always be looking to improve and learn. Effective leadership can take a mistake and turn it into an opportunity for growth and improvement.

If we knew mistakes would never be made, we wouldn’t need life boats or rings.

Darkness Holds Opportunity

FullSizeRender 4 copy

There is security in being able to see what lies ahead. When presented with the unknown, fear and skepticism can override our ability to move forward. Darkness does not remove the opportunity ahead, it only hides it from view. Venturing into the unknown takes faith, confidence and an acceptance of moving out of your comfort zone.

When many others will not venture into the darkness, it can become your opportunity. Fear is overcome when we confront it, and when we do, we are better for it. Embrace the darkness as an opportunity, for all it hides and holds.
