i made my first one today. 3 years in the business. i feel sick and the feeling wont go away. it's a $4000 mistake.

can you guys share your worst mistakes and how long it took you to get over it? if feels like it will never get better. i feel so stupid and it could have been avoided. i feel discouraged and sad.

The more relevant question to ask yourself, in my opinion, is what you did to clean up the mess you made. Did you look to your broker or did you fix it? Did you work through an after action review to find out why your existing systems and knowledge base weren't sufficient to prevent the error? Did you update those systems?

Feeling bad isn't useful if you don't grow professionally from the experience.

Made two tiny clerical errors on an offer (one was putting in the wrong year for the closing date and the other was on one form of the offer putting the names in the wrong spot). Oh well.
