We know that everyone makes mistakes, but in an era where everything goes digital so easily, it seems that mistakes can get costly quickly. An Olympic athlete is photographed smoking something he shouldn’t have been. A comedian makes an inappropriate joke and is labeled insensitive. The entire world knows about it moments later.
The proverbial fishbowl used to be reserved for the famous or socially elite, but now it’s an equal opportunity destroyer. This internet age has thrust everyone into the limelight, and it’s hard to shake negative press or feedback, when everything is recorded forever onto the digital annals of history.
So you’ve messed one up. So now what? If you’ve screwed it royally, or might in the future, here’s a great post from Adam Dachis from Lifehacker, on how to overcome and move past it. Lifehacker is a great resource for all things technical, whether the technical be personal or professional.
