Imagine you’re a manager of a project. You were just told you made a huge mistake on the project and needed to fix it right away.
Now imagine one version where you focus on your mistake, the strong words from your boss and the disappointment from your team.
Now imagine another version where you focus on getting back on track, making it better than expected, bringing the team together and rallying.
Which version do you think you’ll make a greater impact with?
Where you put your focus has a huge influence on where you actually go (and often that you actually go). Both versions feel the sting of the mistake, but one puts focus on what moves them forward.
It’s not easy and that’s why so few do it, but damn is the reward worth it when you do.
