Sorry seems to be the hardest word

Sometimes, to break an impasse on your project you may need to say you are sorry, whether you are right or not and whether the other person is right or not.

This is hard.

Saying “I’m sorry” is hard because it challenges our natural need to protect ourselves. Our ego has been engineered to protect us. Its job is to make sure we are always right.

Saying you are sorry does not have to mean you’re admitting a mistake. The main goal is to get the relationship and the project back on track. That’s, at the end of the day, what matters the most.

Rather than continue an endless debate about who is right and who is wrong or who said what to whom and who did what to whom, Just say the magic word “Sorry.”

To help you practice this “magic word”, here are some ways to say I’m sorry thanks to apologycards.com:
