John Maxwell wrote a great book called “Failing Forward” the premise of the book is that if we learn from our mistakes then we actually improve in life. He states, “Everybody fails, errs, and makes mistakes. You’ve heard the saying ‘To err is human, to forgive is divine.’ Alexander Pope wrote that more than 250 years ago. And he was only paraphrasing a saying that was common 2,000 years ago, during the time of the Romans. Things today are the same as they were then: If you’re a human being, you’re going to make mistakes” (Page 13).

He adds this thought about mistakes, “Errors become mistakes when we perceive them and respond to them incorrectly. Mistakes become failures when we continually respond to them incorrectly” (Page 18).

In other words we should learn from our mistakes and not go back and make them again!
