When something isn’t going the way we expected, we often get frustrated, blame others, and give up (or really, really want to quit).

Instead, you can seek to understand what went wrong. Listening with open ears and asking for help/advice can let you change tactics fast.

And recover. Even when a deadline is racing your way, and it seems like there just isn’t enough time. Take a pause and listen.

You can always change things. Rarely is it ever “too late.”
