My Own Mistakes

I’ve learned something about myself this past week…I do not deal well with my own mistakes. I am a major perfectionist – probably the thing within me that drives me to work so much. I want to do whatever I do the best possible way that I can. If I’m running sound, I want the mixes to be the best possible. If I’m making a website, I want it to function the best way possible and look as best as I can. It’s this mentality though that can get me into trouble. When all the stuff with touring and websites start swirling at max speed, small details are bound to slip away, and this past week they definitely did. I made some booking errors that cost the band a chunk of change that was non-refundable…suck. I felt awful, but the band was really cool and understanding and knew it was a mistake and that I felt really bad, so everything panned out alright and things are still cool, but man…I kicked myself for a solid two days over my mistake just feeling so helplessly guilty and driving myself to be better and more attentive. Ya – I’m human and make mistakes, but man do I hate it when I do.
