How often do we apologize?Behavioral experts who go deep into applied behavioral science research, emphasize the value of apologizing for our mistakes. It might even happen with our son or grandson. If we had beaten him or her, for no fault on their part, it is fine to apologize so that the hurt is gone at that very moment.
Even in our offices, we need to forget our egos and then keep apologizing for any small mistake. We cannot and should not stand on prestige on such matters. It is fine to do so. The concerned person will also mostly reciprocate easily. After all, no one is a villain as shown in many Tamil or Telugu movies to bear a grudge for a long time.
Let us first start this act of apologizing. If we do not have this habit in a big way, let us at least start somewhere. In my personal experience, it does work. Tempers are cooled down and we can possibly live and work in peace. Much more safely and happily than what was even thought possible.
