What to do when I (or we) mess up?
Today, Sunday 24 January I feel I have messed up and wasted my day. It is evening and I have done very little. I have been thinking about how to deal with the problem in general.
1. Be sure what I mean when I say or feel I have messed up i.e. exactly what is it that I have or have not done.
Today I spent most of the day on the internet. I don't feel the problem is the internet it is rather that I did not want to get on with other things.
2.Think if there are reasons why - not to take responsibility away but to make it easier to behave better next time.
I was hoping that a contact would be completed on Friday and it seems it has not and I am dissappointed.
3. Take responsibility but not blame.
Fine I won't beat myself up.
4. Do what I can to put things right.
I have tidyied up and got things ready for tomorrow and planned my week. I'm not going to work all night to catch up as I don't think I could and in any case it would only mean I could not work tomorrow.
Does anyone have ideas on how to deal with this situation because I don't think I am the only person who has experienced it?
