Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Here is a thought I shared with my team

and wanted to pass it on…


 “It is Better to Offer No Excuse Than a Bad One”,

George Washington

We all make mistakes.  The problem isn’t so much making mistakes as the lengths to which we sometimes go to defend ourselves when we make them.  However deep the hole that making the mistakes has put us in, it just gets deeper the more we try and explain ourselves.  If we would simply say “I am wrong” and move on, we wouldn’t waste so much of our time and energy, and the people around us would respect us more.

I will calmly admit any mistakes I make today….

and then move on.
