Do interesting things for more than five minutes, you’ll make mistakes. And … if you’re not making mistakes, you’re not challenging yourself or not trying hard enough. And … if you’re not making mistakes, you’re not learning. So, mistakes equals learning equals mistakes equals …

Actually, mistakes and learning … they’re the same thing, right?

Yep, yep, yep, yep, oh … nope.

Well, yep, as long as you actually do the learning part. As long as you take on board the lesson and work out a way to avoid the same mistake over again. As long as you find a way that stops you banging into the same issue over and over.

Like … that didn’t work … why not, where did we go wrong, what did we miss, how can we do it differently, what should we change? And then remembering to actually try the new way.

Skippy strategy: Mistakes equal learning, if you make the change.
