Yesterday I reblogged an article from a content strategist about how setting your goals too high can lead you to feeling a bit like an under achiever. I think that we all put ourselves under a lot of pressure to be really on our game all the time, to be successful and wonderful and pretty much perfect most of the time. I thought this was an interesting article and that it would be a good thing to share with you all, but I hadn’t looked at the video clip that was embedded in the item. To be honest, I had tried to, but the clip wouldn’t play on my iPad. (What’s that all about???)
Anyway, I had a look at the clip today and was horrified to find it contained the most appalling language. I’m truly sorry if anyone was offended and I’ve removed the post now.
A good lesson learnt on my part though. It won’t happen again.
Lots of people say that learning from your mistakes is the best way to learn and I guess this is true, but it’s painful. I wondered if you had any advice about how to recover from those embarassing moments? You know the ones I’m talking about… You’re up on the podium and you completely forget what you are talking about. You’re in a meeting and you’ve been daydreaming and someone asks you a question and you don’t know what on earth they are talking about. You’re due to give a presentation at another location and you go to the wrong place. Need I go on? I’m sure you have your own examples. Any tips for making a fast recovery and moving on?
