7. I Was Wrong
A phone call jolted me. The caller wanted to confirm everything was ready for a training the following month. I didn’t remember scheduling the training, and there was nothing in my appointment book. I went back through my emails and found one discussing the date for the training.
Almost as a reflex, I said, “Stupid laptop!” The laptop hadn’t forgotten about the training, I had. In my mind I could hear my first sponsor quoting the tenth step, “…and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.”
“If I don’t admit it to myself,” I said out loud, “I’ll be more likely to think I don’t make these scheduling mistakes. More likely to make the same mistake again. Fine. It was my fault, and I need to figure out how I’m gonna keep this from happening again.”
Today I will admit to myself when I’m wrong.
