Mistakes happen. Take a deep breath and don’t let it get to you. Remember the learnings from this project when you scope another one. Do whatever you can to help your team out and keep their morale up this month, but at the end of the day, we’re not saving any lives here, and there is less than a month left in this year.

Times like these are the best lessons. You will never let that happen again and you’ll be a better PM for it.

Note: by “wasn’t collaborative” I meant that they don’t work together well and I have to play middle man a lot so things take more time than they should. So some of my timelines should have worked but also I should have pushed back more 🙁
