Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #045 – Don’t compound the damage!

I can’t say that I love making mistakes. In fact, I don’t love making them. Yes, I do get that mistakes are the fertile ground of learning so I’m OK with making them … especially while holding to my goal to “Make every mistake a new one.” No matter how much they serve, I still have a visceral aversion to admitting my mistakes. Why? Once I admit my mistake, it’s REAL. I can’t hide it, shy away from it, or rationalize it away … Once admitted, it must be acknowledged, addressed, and corrected. After all, as Confucius taught 2400 years ago:

“[One] who has committed a mistake and doesn’t correct it is committing another mistake.”

Mistakes are an inevitable part of living. Handling your mistakes well is the key to thriving.

How do you navigate your mistakes?
