Choose Your Mistakes Carefully

Choose Your Mistakes Carefully


“When someone points out a mistake to you, deal with it–don’t go into denial.” 1

–Craig Newmark, founder Craigslist

Who hasn’t made mistakes? We all do, on a regular basis! But how we deal with them once we realize they are mistakes makes all the difference in the world. Some people never grow up and try to portray themselves as impregnable bastions of knowledge who never err. They don’t realize that others spot them a mile away as one of the “insecure” who need to be handled with kid gloves.

The next time you make a mistake (big or small), write down what you’ve learned from the experience, pray for wisdom to apply the lessons, and head back into the frey!
