“Don't be afraid to make mistakes. While a mistake at the time may seem career-altering, remember that five or ten years down the road, your misstep will be long forgotten. You are best served to own the error, learn from it, and use the lesson to propel your career forward. With every breakdown comes a breakthrough, so sometime later in your career, you may even find yourself glad that the particular mistake was made. So, fail big and move on!”
This great piece of advice comes from Michelle M. Burke, counsel for Porzio, Bromberg & Newman, P.C. in Morristown, New Jersey.
