It’s all about laying blame
I heard this in House MD
Good things happen often, Bad things happen sometimes.
If you are are talented and skilled you will try things that others are afraid to try out and because you are going to live dangerously there will be times when you will fail. What you did and What the outcome is are 2 different things. You can fail or succeed but that will have no bearing on whether you are right or wrong. So next time you have to make a tough decision where the chances of failing are high don’t be afraid – do the right thing.
There will be some who will try to lay blame but eventually you will see – people will realize that your process works because you succeed and disrupting your process makes you ineffective and no one wants to do that.
