Learn from those mistakes

Updated: Oct 28, 2019

You’ll never live long enough to make all the mistakes you need to make to learn all the lessons you need to learn.


She had gone through a tough season trying to supervise a leader who was unteachable and a bad fit for his role. I had heard about her leadership challenge. Because I wanted to learn from the mistakes that were made around choosing this ill-fitting leader I asked her if she was willing to walk me through the mistakes that were made in selecting her subordinate. “I want to learn from your mistakes” I told her-"it’s less painful for me.” I’ll gladly learn from other people’s mistakes, God knows I make plenty mistakes already. But I’ve learned one thing-I’ll never live long enough to make all the mistakes I need to make to learn all the lessons I need to learn.


Let’s keep learning from each other’s mistakes…when you can-celebrate them and share them openly with others-we all want to learn from each other.
