How to make mistakes

Mistakes are a great learning tool. By not being afraid of them we enable ourselves to reach new things.

Here is a brief reflection on how to make them.

  • Step #1 Don't be afraid of making mistakes.

  • Step #2 If you make them, try not to repeat them.

  • Step #3 If you think something could lead to a mistake, consult with the team (give them a heads up), it will be a team mistake with more people to help solve it if it happens.

  • Step #4 Learn from the mistake.

  • Step #5 Repeat.

The point is the socialization, we work on teams and we do better when we support each other.

Also relevant is to differentiate between mistake, error, and accident; there's a great deal of overlap, but for the most part they can be differentiated.

mistake: to blunder on the choice of

error: an act or condition of ignorant or imprudent deviation from a code of behavior

accident: an unforeseen and unplanned event or circumstance
