Things Get Messed Up Sometimes

Whatever your inten­tions, you’ll even­tu­ally forget to do something.

Last week, I forgot to write two blog posts. I thought I had them written (I did a lot of other writing), but I was wrong. That left you without anything to read for a few days and since I took an unan­nounced break for a few days I didn’t catch the mistake.

Whether it’s a deadline that can’t be met, an oversight with a large price tag, or a surprise budget buster these kinds of things hit hard and fast and leave only disap­point­ment and confusion in their wake.

When that happens, you gotta pick yourself up, dust off a bit and remind yourself that it is okay.

It’s okay to make mistakes, to fail miserably, and to be surprised.

Just don’t use it as a reason to give up. Mistakes are only as valuable as the lessons you learn from them.

What did I learn from my mistake? I need to get further ahead in updates so this doesn’t happen. Right now, I’m only about 2 posts ahead at any time. After this week, I’m back at 0. Getting 3-to-6 posts ahead will all bust stop this sort of thing from happening.

A hard lessons that’ll be even harder to implement.

    Apology not accepted! I demand my money back!

    I mean, yeah, I didn’t actually pay you anything, but it’s the principle of the matter!

      On a related note, this is a very Seth Godin type of post. In both content and tone. That’s probably a compliment!

    I like this post. When things get messed up, I just want to hide from them. Typically from under my pillow. Glaring fruitlessly.
