I missed a deadline for a blog post. I submitted the wrong personnel evaluation form. I gave our mission trip host incorrect dates. I charged next year’s ski retreat on this year’s budget.
A bunch of mistakes showed themselves on the same day. Still, I lose no sleep. The blog post is coming this morning, the evaluation form was corrected, there are exciting mission trip alternatives, and the accountants fix bigger missteps than mine all the time.
Working with professionals is mistake insurance, especially if their influence causes you to level up, so that, over time, you make fewer and fewer mistakes.
