ARE YOU LEARNING FROM YOUR MISTAKES? 2



ARE YOU LEARNING FROM YOUR MISTAKES? 2

I would have loved to get my mistake corrected but the distance between A and B's location was much and I was at A's location. I tried to think back to the night before and that morning to trace where the mistake came from. I started questioning myself saying that, I packed it some kind of way already to prevent it from happening, but this but that.. (I was trying to defend myself and prove that I couldn't have made such a mistake when it was established that I made a mistake).

After thinking for a while, I then discovered how I mixed it up when completing the packing that morning. I trusted my memory to help me remember exactly how I had arranged them the night before but it failed me.

It was the I am so sure of myself and what I did, I can't make such mistake syndrome that made me make such a mistake. It won't have cost me anything to reconfirm, but I was just so confident and I ended up making a mistake. I thank God the both parties involved are insiders. I can't imagine what would have happened if they were outsiders or strangers and they decided to flare up.

I made a decision immediately that next time, I will put a name tag or something else that is pronounced to differentiate similar packages. I learnt from my mistake.

What's my message to you from this story?

💡 Know that no one is above mistake including you. You are not perfect no matter how excellent you are, you will still make mistakes.

💡When you realize you have made a mistake, do yourself some good by admitting it. You don't have to complain or try to defend yourself. You don't have to beat yourself too hard because you made a mistake.

💡 You can avoid some mistakes by taking the necessary precautions. Don't be overconfident. Sometime our brain may fail us so it's good to write things down so that we don't forget. If I have noted it down the way I arranged the packages that night, it will have saved me from making that mistake the next morning because all I needed was just to refer to it.

💡 There's nothing wrong in crosschecking whatever you have done as much as possible to check for errors and to avoid mistakes. Don't say you are so sure and you don't double check. This applies to students when writing tests, exams and assignments to be submitted. It also applies to workers too when your boss gives you something to do, cross-check before you submit. In fact this cuts across everyone as it saves us from making avoidable mistakes.

💡 What is the most important thing when you make a mistake is that you pick the lessons in it, move forward and apply what you have learnt as you forge ahead. You don't have to sit in your mistakes or keep complaining or defending yourself. If you don't learn from them and apply the lessons learnt you will form a cycle of constantly repeating the same thing which will keep reducing your productivity.

Are you learning from your mistakes?
