Holy crap I jacked this up...

I screw up alot... I think it's because I wanna do everything in life...

I recently discovered that I made some communication errors and really jacked up a client, who was also a friend's Christmas business. I F*#&king hate screwing up and especially when it hurts someone else.

So I'm sorry.

I am typing a post about it because I learned a long time ago that admitting and getting it out in the open is the only way I can guarantee I learn from it and make less mistakes in the future.

If you want to learn and grow from my dumbass mistakes... just know this, admitting when you jack something up is the key... lying to yourself or others by trying to defend a mistakes just kinda makes you an asshole and... a liar. Listen to me... believe me... I am an expert on this subject.

  2. The best lessons in life are often from mistakes. Chin up my friend and know you are only going up from here. When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.

  5. Anita,

    I was supposed to have communicated something to someone... It's still up for debate whether I actually did or not... That doesn't matter... I didn't follow up and they were some fairly serious business consequences for a friend/client of mine.
