The “Danger” of Dropping the Ball

I was meeting with someone recently who had missed a really important event that was pivotal to his career. It’s not that forgetting to do one thing is the end of the world, but in this case led to a whole series of missteps and missed opportunities.

Just like we can train ourselves to develop good habits that help us achieve our goals and aspirations, we can also train ourselves to fail – and I don’t want this to happen to you.

While we each will drop the ball at points along the way, don’t ignore it. Pick the ball back up, apologize (if needed), and keep moving ahead, By admitting you slipped up, you could actually increase your credibility and be given a second chance.

Enjoy your day,
Anita
