We all hate that sinking feeling when we know a project is doomed. What you do then will have a bigger impact on your health than your reputation. Earlier in my career, I would try to avoid blame as my number one priority. As I got more experienced, I saw the folly of this and realized I needed to follow through with my best work. How we deal with tough times says more to others than how we behave when things are going smoothly. In this video I share the story of two clients I worked with that had failing projects. Sadly - I've been on more failed projects than successful ones, but I felt these two might help you think about how you cope with this situation. Remember just because a project fails - it doesn't mean YOU are a failure. It's OK to accept circumstances, accept your limitations - and do what you can. Your family, relationships, and health will thank you for it!
