They say its Ok to make a mistake. But then they don’t forget about it.
They say learn from mistakes. But then they are not patient.
They say mistakes are a stepping stone. But then they don’t say how many.
So is there a smart way out of it? Is there a prescription for mistakes you make in life?What about repeat mistakers? Do they have no hope?Does the running world have time for them?Or do they just filter out as the natural selection occurs?The non –mistakers or the always right-ers tend to think they have covered it all.They are quick to point someone elses mistake.Infer out a mistake or deduce one if need be.But in the process forget their own mistakes in the past.
Sometimes they don’t even realize that they are committing a mistake. Doing something wrong for a long time does not make it right.But that becomes their truth and they cannot see beyond that limited logic.People are mostly comfortable with other people who are like them.They get very uncomfortable with other people who are not like them but have a better or smarter way of doing things.
This is the fundamental cause of most people to people power plays and politics.Each fighting for his or her own belief system.What then is the chance for the average Joginder ( just a name no one specific) to make mistakes and yet be counted? He desires to be counted because there is more he can offer than the predefined mistakes.But who is listening and who has the time?
So if you make a mistake next time, analyze it objectively,and if you see someone making a mistake try to coach rather than critic him/her.People need to make time for other people…after all what goes around, comes around.
