Some days, you will mess up. Some days, your product won’t work, your executive team will say something silly, your financials won’t match the desires of Wall Street, maybe you personally will do something that you regret deeply. It actually does happen.
I make mistakes. You probably do, too. Or maybe you don’t, but I sure do.
If nothing else, apologize. Then try to learn. Then try not to repeat the mistakes.
Isn’t it strange? As humans, we know this. Don’t we? But as a business, are you ready to apologize? Can you just admit what you’ve done and try to move things to the next part?
I say sorry for something every single day. Sometimes, it’s something small. Other times, it’s something bigger. What about you?
