Do the right thing
While in my office last week, I received a much needed phone number from someone. My Mother had asked for a contact number of a Plumber for some work she needed at her house. It was a busy day when I picked up the phone and immediately tried to fiip the number to my Mother and return back to a deadline driven day. My Mother had many legitimate questions regarding the Plumber and how I knew him. I was under stess and after the third or fourth question spoke a bit harshly. The words lept out of my mouth and I couldn't take them back. Darn, I'm suddenly a bad guy.
I thought about it and ultimately decided the right thing to do was have a face to face chat (which I did on Sunday). Regardless of how much I was under at the time with an allergy/cold I was feeling and the deadline I was under that day, I needed to apologize in person.
Many times it's hard to do the right thing when you're afraid or ashamed of what you've done. Doing the right thing though makes you a better person.
