Learn with a Lawyer - Learn how to RECOVER after you make a mistake!
One skill we all need is how to recover after making a mistake. There are two reactions typically to when you make a mistake and it gets called out. Being defensive or being open to criticism, its always better to be open to criticism even if you disagree with the person who is criticizing you. Listen and understand where they are coming from and adjust moving forward perhaps with just that person. This comes into play with my job with different judges. Certain judges have certain ways of handling situations and perhaps I present something to one judge in a way that another judge wouldn’t have an issue with. I listen to the criticism from that judge make note and react appropriately moving forward. Don’t be afraid to take criticism and don’t afraid to approach your mistakes in a graceful way. Getting defensive about making mistakes typically never helps anybody.
