Oh No!

“You prove a mistake a mistake only in two cases – when you ‘take what you should miss’…and when youmiss what you should take’”.

………………

What I mean by ‘taking what you should miss’ is that after a mistake, people focus too much on ‘how they are feeling about it’. They typically roll themselves in self-worn guilt and flaunt a ‘long face’. While this reaction is a natural one initially, people deliberately elongate it either to prove their sincerity to those around them or to feed their own ego… Yes! It’s the junk that most people hold onto uselessly…

And what I mean by ‘missing what you should take’ is that after a mistake, people lose an opportunity to take valuable observations – ‘why it happened’, ‘when it all went out of their hands’, ‘what they should do now’, ‘where does it all lead to’ or ‘how they can salvage what still can be’… Yes! Every mistake should be followed by a heightened awareness and sharpened sense of objectivity…

………………

Well! The fact is that More than the mistake, it is what people do after it, that costs more”.
