As a young executive in my 20s, I remember a CEO client calling to let me know there was big mistake in something my team produced.
“I don’t understand why I have to let this go she’s the one who was rude,” a client said to me.
Forgiveness is wise. It values joy more than self-righteousness.
Nothing will work unless you do.
What happens when you lose the big account or your new business venture tanks? We’ve all worked hard at something and had it not turn out the way we wanted.
“Forgiveness is giving up the illusion that things could have been or should have been otherwise.”
“Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.”
Recently I was reminded how challenging it can be when someone in a workplace is difficult, temperamental or closed off.
“Three-fourths of the miseries and misunderstandings in the world will disappear if we step into the shoes of our adversaries and understand their standpoint.”
“Seek first to understand, then to be understood.”
The truth is, the fear of not being good enough is something every man, woman and child has felt to some extent.
If you’re in the thick of it, know you’re not alone. And, this won’t last forever.
