Mistakes 

Guest Post by Dick Warn

R. Buckminster Fuller, American inventor and philosopher, said, “Most of my advances were by mistake. You uncover what is when you get rid of what isn’t.”

Henry Ford, American industrialist and founder of Ford Motor Company, said, “Even a mistake may turn out to be the one thing necessary to a worthwhile achievement.”

And Confucius said, “He who makes no mistakes makes nothing.”

He (or she) who attempts to live a perfect life drives themselves and others crazy. Perfection is beyond our reach. What we should do when we make an error is bounce back as fast as we can without blaming anyone, including ourselves for being human. The blame game, no matter where we aim it, doesn’t help anyone.

Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, said, “Don’t argue for other people’s weaknesses. Don’t argue for your own. When you make a mistake, admit it, correct it, and learn from it – immediately.”

He (or she) who insists on dragging their mistakes into the future has little hope of finding happiness. It cannot be done.
