Let's learn to blame ourselves, and not others for our faults
It is a tendency to quickly blame another person for mistakes and faults instead of blaming oneself when one is responsible for it. Why is this so? Discuss the concept of blame game in this thread.
We often have this habit of not owning our mistakes. We tend to blame others very quickly and if it backfires, we are left feeling miserable. A very Senior level person in an auto component company faced this situation recently. In a vital meeting, he blamed a junior official of not sending him a vital paper for information. The poor person had to get a big banging in the presence of others. He was given a dressing down by the CEO himself.
A couple of hours later, almost by the time the meeting got over, the very same paper had found its way to the CEO's table, with the comments of the Senior person, who had actually forgotten seeing the paper. He should have checked for facts rather than rushing to conclusions. The CEO called both the persons and explained how this situation could have been better handled.
We, the common people also do similar mistakes. We often blame our wives for no fault of theirs. We even show all our anger on our children, who are very innocent. In any case, owning our mistakes is the best way to survive and also be happy.
