Despite my work to make everything perfect and meet my deadlines, one mistake saw its way into print. There was a missing word in an employee benefits document going to retirees. The sentence read, "Cosmetic surgery is covered" when it should have read "Cosmetic surgery is not covered." I was sure I would lose my job, but my manager said, "Do what is necessary to fix it and make sure it doesn't happen again."
- Everything doesn't have to be perfect.
- Mistakes can be fixed.
