I believe the No. 1 mistake that people, leaders need to avoid is to constantly be beating yourself up. In life, if you’re a leader, that means you’re making decisions—and if you make decisions, some of them aren’t going to be good. The truth is a lot of people think by avoiding a decision, they’re saying, “I’m doing something that’s going to make sure I don’t make a mistake.” Well the truth is that not making a decision is a decision, and everything you do isn’t going to work out. You’ve got to be honest with yourself about where you’re at, where the business is at and play the ball where it lies. Approach the problem, and then go adjust course and make changes that you need to do.
