Nobody likes to fail. It’s uncomfortable, annoying, and even depressing. People instinctively try to avoid failure and when we fail, we don’t like to revisit those often painful experiences. Most of us prefer to simply forget about them and move on to something else more positive and pleasant.
But here’s the thing -- ignoring failure sets you up for failing again.
Instead, we need to embrace failure. Look it square in the eye and ask, “how and why did this happen?” As landscaping professionals it’s important that we look back at the prior year, understand what worked, and analyze what went wrong. Our mistakes can teach us what we need to do to improve.
