If you make a mistake then own it. I find it unbelievable how many people actually try to blame their fault on someone else although it’s obvious that nobody else had anything to do with it.
It’s the “those idiots sent me here” thing, while it’s clear that “those idiots” actually did the right thing and the person did the wrong thing. It’s like pulling into a one way street the wrong way and then blaming it on others.
It’s the calling someone a bitch for something that was done wrong by you, just because that person is unable to help you. I do hate the word procedure or policy too but in some cases it’s just what it is and there’s simply no way around it. So deal with it.
If you make a mistake and people honestly try to help you and solve the problem then appreciate it. It’s that simple.
Working is like a huge field study. The behaviour of people is crazy interesting. No matter who they are, how important they think they are or what they want. I love studying the behaviour of people at the moment. I love seeing how they react in certain situations. And I love to see the huge differences in their reaction to the same issues.
I believe you can tell a lot about a person by the way they approach you, the way they react and the way they leave. There’s a lot I will take out of the last couple of weeks again. Lots of things I learned once more. I have a little list in my head of reactions I want to have in my future when confronted with certain issues, things I want to do and especially reactions I never want to make mine.
And that one thing pops in my mind I was always told when growing up: Treat people the way you want to be treated…
