The past few weeks I made a couple of business mistakes, and I learned a huge deal from them.
I have renewed appreciation for small mistakes that cost us some reasonable amount of pain or money in the short term.
While some of these mistakes are indicative of a high volume of experimentation or bias for action, many may simply be errors of judgment.
Regardless of the variant, they should be welcomed because small mistakes help us avoid big mistakes.
By removing any false sense of over confidence from being temporary flawless and by giving us an opportunity to learn from them, small mistakes can be valuable if we take the time to reflect on them and improve our processes.
Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment. And, small mistakes are just opportunities from life to improve our judgment.
Small mistakes keep you in the game, if you don’t make mistakes, you are not experimenting, and if you are not experimenting, you are not innovating.
No innovation, no growth.
I’m glad of the small mistakes I made recently, they made me wiser and allowed me to play the game better.
If you are not making mistakes, you are not doing entrepreneurship right.
The person who does not make mistakes, is unlikely to make anything.
Make more small mistakes, new mistakes. He who makes the most mistakes wins.
The secret is not avoid mistakes, it is to embrace them more often.
The worst mistake is not to make any.
