Grab a hose and run into the fire.
Stakeholders know you fell short. What are you waiting for?
Delay aggravates disappointment.
Look the fire in the eye and sneer.
Confidence recognizes challenges. But bravado pretends things aren’t that bad.
- I missed the mark.
- I misjudged this project.
- I disappointed my clients.
Acknowledge poor performance before others need to convince you it exists.
