Column: Beavers can’t dwell on losses


I’d be a terrible football player.

Never mind the fact that I can’t run, I have a poor arm and I’m afraid of conflict.

I couldn’t handle it mentally.

I’m the type of person that obsesses over mistakes. If there’s a typo in the paper, I beat myself up.

But that’s the thing about my industry: Even if I make a mistake, the slate (mostly) is wiped clean each day. There’s a new edition of the paper and I don’t have to dwell on one bad article for too long.
