Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.
We all make mistakes, and the key is to learn from them. The good news is that you don't have to wait until YOU make the mistake in order to learn. You can learn from the mistakes that others make as well. In NLP, we say, "There is no failure, only feedback." From each mistake or failure, there are lessons to be learned. You don't need to let mistakes devastate you, just learn from them. And let the mistakes of others guide you as well.
This week: Look back on the mistakes you made last week. What did you learn from them? Think about the mistakes that those around you made as well. What can you learn from those experiences? How can you use your mistakes and those of others to help you in the future? Write down your learnings.
