Bouncing Back

As hard as we try not to, sometimes we fail, it is a part of our everyday life.  So what do you do when this happens, how do you bounce back?  The article, “How to Recover From an Epic Fail,” by Geoffrey James offers a formula to get back up and keep going after a failure.  It is…
1. Stop complaining
2. Take responsibility
3. Forgive yourself
4. Celebrate It
5. Debrief/review
6. Recommit
7. Draft a new plan
8. Make sure your plan is rooted in reality
9. Execute
These steps are designed to heal from a failure, while still learning from it, then picking up the pieces and starting again.  Every failure is a chance to learn.
