in some way or another you made big mistake.
That much is inevitable. You're human. It happens.
Natural reaction is to want to try and "fix it"
But just like a log to a fire, once it's burned, you can't fix that log. It got fucked up.
But hey, just because the log caught inferno doesn't mean we have to blaze the entire forest in an inferno.
In other words, there's a certain way to react to your fuck up. You want to eliminate as much potential further damage as possible.
One way to do that is to stop playing the blame game. Take responssibility for your own actions. Don't blame your co-worker or sister or next door neighbor's dog. Don't blame it on your stress either.
You did what you did and you fucked up. Admit that.
If you blame it on something besides yourself, you're really not giving yourself a chance to make the changes necessary and avoid a similar fuck up in the future.
When you blame, you are placing the control (to change) on something outside of yourself, and that makes it...unchangeable.
You can only learn from mistakes if you take accountability.
In today's episode, I talk about several more ways to prevent a mistake from getting any worse, or how to avoid fucking up a fuck up, if you will.
Don't fuck up and omit listening to it ;p
