[1: 207 of 10,000] In Honor of Good Old Jackson

They say whenever the question what was your greatest mistake is being asked especially in a wide audience the person on the spot won’t be able to answer. As Scott Berkun stated ‘I doubt you’ve made a mistake that killed anyone’ yes I didn’t but if I think about my previous mistakes what popped out –

  1. I still need to work on my patience. My friends always say I’m a good daughter and a sister but I still think I am not good enough because there are so many times in the past that I took them for granted. I am a work in progress and as I grow older, I now know which word and action could hurt their feelings and could eventually break my heart too.
  2. I am sorry that I hired the wrong successor of Editor-in-Chief for my college’s yearbook. I was a great leader publishing our batch’s profile and I thought I’ve chosen the right one to stand in my place for the upcoming graduates. She stole the money of the subscribers and the graduating class of 2002 was left without a memorabilia. I am disheartened for my wrong choice. I know it isn’t entirely my fault that she didn’t do her responsibility and even committed a crime; but if only I could have sensed that and picked the right person. The next time I hire, I’ll make it right.
  3. I am still not living my passion in my every breathing moment. I owe that to myself and to the world. I am doing something about it right now and I will not stop until I live the day with so much gusto I can bless the people around me with my pure love for doing what I do best. I am scared to take the risk but I know it isn’t a smart calculated risk, but I am not giving up. I am not stopping.

In honor of good old Jackson, we arrive to perfection by experiencing what are the wrong things to not repeat; I am thankful for the existence of ‘sorry’ and ‘forgiveness’ because with those we can then again begin.
