Realizing a New Job Was a Mistake on Day 1: Eric Twiggs
My guest for Episode #45 of “the My Favorite Mistake” podcast is Eric M. Twiggs, the host of the podcast called The 30 Minute Hour. I was his guest in this episode last month, so please take a listen. I've really enjoyed both conversations with him!
Eric is a founding partner and president of The What Now Movement. His mission is to build high performing entrepreneurs, authors, and career professionals, who are prepared for life’s unexpected curve balls.

In today's episode, Eric tells a story about leaving a company to take a new job as a district manager at a video store company. On the very first day of the new job, Eric thought he had made a huge mistake. He didn't quit, because that would have been admitting a mistake… was that a mistake? He stuck with it and ended up learning so much from that challenging role that he calls a “favorite mistake” now.
We also talk about situational leadership, finding your purpose, and the patterns that cause us to procrastinate — and what we can do about it.
