When people make mistakes, they often look at the big picture. Time and time again, I have said that it’s better to look at the big painting instead of that small scratch that is a micrometer long. However, when there’s a lot of misplaced paint on the canvas that everyone can see, it’s more important to learn from the mistakes than to primarily look at the big picture.
The first way to learn from your mistakes is to identify them all. If you’re honest with yourself, you are going to learn a lot. If you aren’t going to be honest with yourself, who do you have to trust?
The second way to learn from mistakes is to find the solution right away. Whether this means 5 minutes on Google, a few hours on Google, or even going to the library, you need to learn from that mistake.
The third way to learn from mistakes is to make sure you don’t perform the same mistake twice.
That’s all you have to do in order to learn from your mistakes. The next time you make a mistake, use these steps. The more you learn, the less mistakes you will make.
