Since it is important to realise that there will never be a situation where everything is perfect, it is equally important to expect setbacks on the way. A setback does not have to be a negative thing. For go-getters a setback can provide the opportunity to understand the gaps between the current and expected results. A setback also provide us with the opportunity to locate the cause of a mistake and then adapt future efforts accordingly. Therefore, if you want to improve your business performance and results in the future, see a setback as a stepping stone from which you can learn valuable lessons.
