We are humans and we commit mistakes! But how much do you learn from them?

“Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it’s a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from” said Al Franken, a renowned American entertainer and politician. Indeed! You should be generous enough to admit your mistakes, determined enough to correct them and then percipient enough to profit from them. But either most of us are running away from our mistakes or ain’t aware on how to learn from them. Do not fear your mistakes because “learning has to include an amount of failure, because failure is instructional in the process”. In this fantastic talk by Diana Laufenberg, a secondary social studies teacher, titled “How to learn? From mistakes”, she brilliantly explains all about it!
