I am going to make a mistake today. You are going to make a mistake today. The people around us will make a mistake today. Mistakes are inevitable. They have a way of shining a light on what we lack. They make us feel incompetent and stupid. That’s because we are probably much more incompetent and stupid than we think we are. I dislike mistakes because of that reminder. However, I like the mistakes that I make because they give me the data necessary to decrease my incompetency and stupidity. Avoiding mistakes also avoids the awareness that humbles me and the learning that makes me better.
