“this does not mean that people should be penalized for making mistakes. Nobody learns except by making mistakes. The better a man is the more mistakes will he make -for the more new things he will try. I would never promote a man into a top-level job who has not made mistakes, and big ones at that. Otherwise he is sure to be mediocre. Worse still, not having made mistakes, he will not have learned how to spot them early and how to correct them.”
excerpt from “The Practice of Management” by Peter Drucker
- When is the last time you made a “mistake”?
- What did you learn from it?
- How much risk are you taking these days in trying new things?
- Has complacency started to settle in on any area of your life?
