The trouble with avoiding mistakes is that you don’t learn anything. Which makes you even more likely to make mistakes… especially the big ones.
Now, compare that idea to what the big companies are doing…creating these company cultures where a mistake can get you canned. A win can get you promoted. Lots of anxiety around learning at these places, you know?
Now, compare that idea to what the best companies are doing…they’re always, always changing their game plan, their products, their business model, you name it.
And they’re making mistakes by the bucketload.
Except they factor it in beforehand. And they learn from it afterwards.
The good news is, every person learns this lesson eventually.
It just gets too painful not to.
