Lead, don’t lag.

We can wait for problems to happen and then have an opinion about what went wrong.

But, why wait for trouble to happen when you can do some things to reduce it?

What if . . . we consider what might need to be learned and what might go wrong first and then help create a clear and better path?

The most effective, best loved teachers teach and train before they assess. They are proactive in their work.

The best assessing always comes after the teaching.

And the best response to failures is to first determine what went right and reinforce those things. Then, go back again and determine what went wrong and proactively address those concerns with compassionate reteaching.

For wise people, these things often happen internally, so be honest and kind to yourself. Give yourself mercy and grace as you learn.

After all, life is a series of learning opportunities!
