The adult way to face a mistake

So, you've made a mistake...
What do you do?

Yesterday I wrote about the immature way to deal with a mistake... F.I.S.T.C.

Today I want to describe the way adults deal with their mistakes.

They pay the price to put it right.
They wear the cost to fix things.
They make the hard choices in order to set things straight.
They make a plan to do better next time and avoid the mistake again.
They don't make excuses.
They apologise.

These responses are exactly the opposite of F.I.S.T.C.

These responses are a part of accepting responsibility for their part of the problem.

This is one of the significant differences between teens and adults.
With maturity comes responsibility.
