No Bad Turns

At times, you may regret things you have done or directions you have taken and look at them as wrong. An alternative is to see your life and career as a journey of many trails and turns. The key is to keep going. If you have a failure or make a mistake, it may be leading you somewhere positive that you did not anticipate. Or, if it sends you in a direction you do not want to go, you can course-correct and learn from the experience.

Try developing a long-term, less self-critical approach to what happens on your career path. In doing so, you maintain your momentum, self-confidence and positive point of view.

Staying Present To Mistakes

A recent NY Times article, So You’ve Made a Huge Mistake. What Now? by Tim Herrera looks at recovering from a mistake or blunder.

Mistakes can stop you in your tracks and even send you backwards, if you let them. Staying present to a mistake you have made brings all your skill and talent to rectifying any damage done. Next time you make “a big one”, accept it and move on towards a better place than you were before. Mistakes help you grow and learn. They are not worthless or unfixable.
