We’re all human. And unfortunately that means that every now and then you forget to turn on your brain. Especially when you run a startup there’s the occasional gaffe that in retrospect seems absolutely embarrassing. HOW COULD WE BE SO STUPID?
For this one we had to dig quite deep into our memory. Since we’re running such a tight ship we could only muster up 5 rookie mistakes…
Nah, not even Team Floown is perfect. But as Barack Obama said: “You try to figure out how to be in the moment, make the best decision you can, know that you’re going to get a bunch of them right, but a bunch of times you’re also not going to get it exactly the way you want it.”
Meaning, don’t fret too long over all the small mistakes. You can have a bad morning, a bad afternoon, but when you keep focused and positive you might write the most genius code, design the most beautiful logo, or make the best decision in the evening. Just because you kept at it, and let loose the negativity of what was before.
Our rookie mistakes hopefully make you laugh. Put a smile on your face. And when you run an into a similar situation, hopefully you won’t make that same mistake. But more importantly, always remember to keep on moving. After five mistakes, the sixth thing you do might be the best thing you’ll ever do.
