Hello haiershen. It is really serious that you let out your commercial secret without your knowing about it. I think that it is very important for you to be careful and considerate when it comes to doing business with the others. Anyway, your immediate boss did not blame you for that. I am sure that you feel guilty for it. Since you know about your weak side, namely, being mindless, I am sure that you are now having a lot of changes to be a careful girl. Take care, my dear friend. I wish you lucky in your business.

Hi haiershen, I'm also an careless as well as absent minded person. I do always make careless mistakes all the time. the careless mistake mostly happen to occur on figures, decimal point as well as the spelling of words which are quite similar in spelling. Yeah, sometimes I might forget to get things readied in time for having a poor memory To avoid such mistakes to happen again, it's wise for us to double or triple check all the works we have completed before the submission. It's worth to consume more extra time to check every thing carefully especially those we might easily make mistake again and again than to regret later on. I always jot down the important items on a sheet of paper and place it in in front so that this will remind me what and when the important thing I have to do for that day or later on Take care and happy posting!

Well, from time to time things like this do happen, and Yes, it is not always a good thing for sure. All I can say, is that when things like this happen maybe it is just time to slow down, look over everything a little more carefully and evaluate everything and see if there is anything there you might need to change and then consider sending it off where needed as well. As long as it did not make a huge inpact in the error you made, then things are fixable, but when it is a\Bigger noticeable error than things can get hairy for sure.

hello, i don't think you're mindless, otherwise you wouldn't be working at all, instead you might end up in the mental hospital. i think there's another term for that, it's either forgetful or lack of focus or attention to certain things. my advice since I also experience the same thing is to double check the things that you do, check if the attachment on the email is the same or not. never slip the important details, luckily the boss didn't fire you....
