I Was Mistaken

No one likes making mistakes, but unless we actually do make mistakes, it’s often difficult for us to learn. Author Bryant McGill said “A person who makes few mistakes makes little progress.”

We’ve been told since we were small that we should learn from our mistakes. So, is it possible that we’re not making enough mistakes? Does a lack of error prove that we’re not taking enough chances?

It takes a certain amount of bravery to risk slipping up. We should not fear our missteps. Shame resides not in the process of trying something that might not work, but in refusing to learn from our errors and continuously making the same mistake again.

Or in never making a mistake in the first place.
