Accepting Responsibility

After all the apology posts on this blog, I’ve found myself very careful about my apologies and especially taking full responsibility for my actions.  What that has meant this week is not giving reasons for my failures.  That is HARD!  I don’t want people to think poorly of me and so I want to give the reasons for my failures.

I failed to complete a report that was due earlier this month and attended a meeting where that report would be reviewed.  I simply said that I had not completed it yet, but would.  My apology consisted of regret for the problems that caused for others who were relying on that report.  I think my tongue still has scars from the attempt to not say more.  It is a challenging exercise to say the least.
