No blaming please 11:05 on Saturday

Continuing on the topic of failing

I’m not much into pointing out who is responsible for things going wrong. What’s so good about finding the person(s) who caused things to go wrong? Do you think it will make things better by blaming someone for failure?

When things go wrong — in work, relationships, with your family — it’s best to realize we’re in this together, and everybody could have done something better. Most often nobody is solely responsible, and everybody involved has room for improvement.

When faced with failure, skip the part where you try to find someone or something to blame. Instead, go directly into identifying the lessons learned and what to do differently the next time around.
