Leadership Tip: What To Do with Your Blunders and Absurdities
Time to Read: 1 min...
In this post, I thought I’d share with you a bit of wisdom I have on display in my office as a personal reminder:
“Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it serenely and
with too high a spirit to be encumbered
with your old nonsense.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
- At the end of each day, take a deep breath and appreciate what you and your team have accomplished. Then exhale and let go of all the rest of it.
- Begin the new day with a fresh slate - energized with optimism and high spirits for the possibilities ahead.
