“To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the biggest mistake of all.”
Having the freedom to make a mistake rocks! It’s nice to be able to do things my own way (with all of the prerequisite research, of course) without having to worry about whether or not I’m doing them correctly!
A lot of this thinking has to do with the fact that I know that from mistakes come great things. Any inventor, artist, and scientist will tell you that. When fear of making a mistake enters the equation, you’ve completely stifled the creative nature, the problem solving process that allows better things to develop.
Go ahead, make a mistake. It’s fun, and it can often lead to wonderful discoveries and creations!
