A lesson my wife didn’t like and neither will you!
Yesterday my wife came home, burst through the door and shouted to come down urgently
She had just been to pick our daughter up from school with our son who is 2
“Look what he has done to my phone”
She held up her cracked phone (the second in 6 months) furiously
“Its not his fault” was my candid reply
I got that look!
“I passed it to him and he knocked it out of my hand!” she continued
Again I repeated my first message and continued
“If you had a case on it, like I said after the last phone that broke, this wouldn’t have happened”
“Why were you passing him your phone in the first place”
I didn’t get a response, just that look again.
You will be doing the same on your projects
“That architect has messed these drawings up”
“That price is too high”
“The builder is taking the piss out of me”
“That isn’t what I wanted”
If you have said any of these phrases then im sorry to tell you but the real problem is staring back at you in the mirror.
Accept some responsibility. I will warn you though, it isn’t easy.
