    A short story for you:

    I made a hiring mistake 15 years ago that I've never forgotten. Was a good error.. taught me an excellent lesson.

    The decision was down to two candidates. I wanted Candidate 1. Two others thought Candidate 2 was the better choice.

    In my mind, "1" was a way superior fit for the spot.

    Well, I was overruled... and in a short while, I got to realize I was wrong, and that "2" indeed had been the best choice.

    Good luck!
