To err is important and admitting you’re wrong once in a while is imperative to personal and professional growth. Let’s face it; we all hate to be wrong! However, sometimes the only way to get things right is to be wrong first. Making mistakes is a by-product of trying new things…taking a risk.
Will every marketing campaign work? No.
Will every employee work out? No.
Will every new product be a game-changer? No.
But, if we aren’t bold about making these decisions, we’ll never have the wisdom of the “wrongs” that leads to the “rights.” Ask yourself today, have I made any mistakes lately? If the answer is no, I suspect you might be missing a chance to get it right…by getting it wrong.
Are any of our readers brave enough to share a business mistake and how you learned from it? I’m of the mindset that I love to learn from someone else’s mistakes now and then. So, bring it on.
