The goal is not to avoid mistakes

Periodic reminder to self – the goal isn’t to avoid mistakes. It is to avoid repeating the same mistakes.

If we’re trying different things and stretching ourselves, new mistakes and those embarrassing falls/stumbles are inevitable.

So, instead of spending time reviewing that dreaded highlight reel of all of our mistakes as we wrap up the week, here’s to celebrating the new mistakes (and the accompanying learning). :-)

Failure, after all, isn’t in the falling down. It is in the staying down.
