One of the biggest mistakes you can make is making no mistake at all.
Learning new skills, trying new things, growth, solving problems all involve some sort of failing.
So don’t be afraid to make mistakes; be afraid of never making anything.
See, to create, to get better at a craft, you start by making crap. At first what you make will sound wrong, look bad, feel off.
But that doesn’t mean you’re a failure. No.
You’re just in process. And making mistakes is a part of that.
But as you proceed, you’ll get better, you’ll learn, you’ll progress.
And if you continue, you’ll find with each miss, occasionally you’ll hit the mark. Until one day you never fail to hit it.
Mistakes don’t make you a failure. They make you succeed.
