Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Here is a thought I shared with my team

and wanted to pass it on…


Learning from Mistakes


“Mistakes are the Portal of Discovery”, James Joyce

Oh, how we hate making mistakes!  They embarrass us, they slow us down, they make us feel stupid or incompetent.

But, we would never learn anything new if we didn’t make mistakes.  A life without mistakes (if such a thing were even possible) would be stagnant, boring and unproductive.

Mistakes open doors to possibilities

we would otherwise have never known existed.


Next time I make a mistake (and it could be any moment now), I’ll remind myself 

that there’s something good I can learn from it.
