On Dealing With Disagreement
Disagreement is inevitable. You’re going to do things that, for whatever reason, cause friction. That’s absolute. Can’t be avoided and, truthfully, probably shouldn’t be avoided.
When it happens, the first question to ask is: was I wrong?
Be honest. And if the answer is “yes” – as it sometimes will be – then there’s only one way to go:
Own up to the mistake, make no excuses, and try to make it right.
This is a hard thing but it is also without exception the right thing. And in a happy coincidence, it also ends up in the long term being the smart thing.
