Mistakes will happen. We’re humans, not robots.
When a mistake happens, pay attention to why it happened. Before assessing anything else, assess the discipline of your process, decisions, and actions.
Lack of discipline leads to mistakes. More mistakes. Bigger mistakes. The pressure, anxiety, and embarrassment of those mistakes often leads to further lack of discipline.
Do not compound an undisciplined mistake with an undisciplined attempt to recover from it. When you make an undisciplined mistake, and you will, acknowledge it and immediately return to discipline.
Mistakes will happen. Even undisciplined mistakes. What matters more is how quickly you recognize it and return to discipline.
Answer the call. Do the work.
