"Good judgment comes from experience,
and often experience comes from bad judgment."
~Rita Mae Brown
We often forget that we develop good judgment from the mistakes we've made in the past. Those experiences of bad judgment teach us important lessons which (hopefully) keep us from making those mistakes repeatedly. Appreciate your experiences, both good and bad, for they have much to teach you.
This week: Notice when you make a mistake, when your judgment wasn't perfect. Ask yourself "What can I learn from this experience that will help me in the future?" Pay attention to the lesson. What will you do differently next time?
