From The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.
For those filled with regret, perhaps the most needful exercise of proactivity is that past mistakes are also out there in the Circle of Concern. We can’t recall them, we can’t undo them, we can’t control the consequences that came as a result.
Don’t make a second (bigger) mistake by not accepting that you made a mistake, or by constantly reiterating the mistake in your mind.

More great words from Randy Pauch in his Last Lecture.
Get a feedback loop and listen to it. Your feedback loop can be this dorky spreadsheet thing I did, or it can just be one great man who tells you what you need to hear. The hard part is the listening to it.
Do you listen? (Even when you don’t like what you hear?)
