A good friend of mine, Wendy, likes to say it’s best to “fail hard, and fail fast” meaning that it’s good to make lots of mistakes and know exactly what’s working and what’s not.
As adults, everyone seems to learn differently, but as infants we learned to walk and talk by constantly making mistakes until our brains were wired and our muscle were trained.
By the time we had become children the learning differences became obvious. Some of us watched the hot element on the stove and daren’t touch it for fear of getting burned while others had to touch the stove to accept it was searing hot (that was me btw).
Do you take stuff for granted or do you need to see the truth firsthand? Do you learn by making lots of mistakes?
Maybe the mistakes you are making today aren’t all that bad. Maybe they are making you a better you.
