Bouncing Back After a Mistake
You have just made a mistake at work. You’re embarrassed. Your supervisor knows you’ve screwed up. Your mind starts racing—you have lost all trust with your supervisor, you’ll never get that promotion, and now you’ll be labeled “the screw up." Before you consider the idea of quitting your job and traveling to South America to avoid the reality of a minimally damaged work relationship, you can use this opportunity to build yourself. You have the potential to take action, rekindle trust, and perhaps rationally plan a backpacking vacation while keeping your job.
