Feeling Pressure | Career Angles

You made a mistake and were caught

You made a mistake.


No way out.

If you admitted, it is costly.

Costly can take a variety of different forms. You can write a check to make it go away (after the business owner).

As an employee, often the cost is about a lack of trust that will happen when it is discovered and/or you admit it.

You just made a mistake.

Hopefully, you’re not in a profession where a mistake can kill someone.

It just feels the same way.

But it isn’t.

Take a deep breath and exhale slowly.

Do that a few times until you return to normal.

Handle it. Don’t let it eat you up from the inside.

It won’t go away.

At least not until you deal with it.
