Mistakes Are Okay. Just Be Sure to Make New Mistakes.
We gain wisdom and perspective when we consider other points of view. Empathy for others helps us take responsibility for our conduct and learn from our mistakes. Often a mistake leads to unfortunate consequences, and it is important to repair the damage and make amends.
How Do Issues of Perspective Influence You Today?
People need people. None of us lives in a vacuum or cave, and we all make mistakes. We impact one another and can learn from, collaborate with, and support those around us. We each have unique gifts and talents to use and share with others.
How do I get unstuck? By learning new skills! When it comes to perspective, consider mastering these: Avoid excuses. Forgive myself. Learn from mistakes. Repair and recover.
“Repeated ‘mistakes’ cannot be regarded as mistakes because we know in advance that there will be negative outcomes.”
