"An expert is a [man] who has made [100%] of the mistakes which can be made in a narrow field.”
- SOURCE: Neils Bohr, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Physics, 1922.
But at the same time, we do not want nor like mistakes. In fact, we are usually punished or chided for them.
So, the quandary: If Mr. Bohr is correct, then how do create environments -- at school or at work -- where we are allowed to fail, maybe even encourage to do so, in order to generate quicker and better feedback to learn what works and what doesn't. Maybe it's this kind of process that can help us achieve our goals, whatever that might be, (insert motivational "Rocky" theme music) and perhaps to do so with a little less anxiety and more self-confidence (insert...uh...Enya music).
