Pride is a funny thing. It can motivate you or become your worst enemy.
Imagine you and someone you previously worked with have a falling out. Both parties swear to never speak again. But then, a job comes up that requires reconciliation. Are you willing to say no because you don’t want to make the first move?
Don’t let your ego stop you from mending relationships. Make it a habit to be the first to pick up the phone and swallow your pride. Having soured relationships can only hurt you; reaching out and fixing broken relationships can only help you.
