Mistakes are OK


Can you recall a mistake you’ve made recently?

Can you recall a mistake you’ve made recently? The reality is that we all make mistakes on a regular basis, yet society sometimes convinces us that mistakes are a problem, something we should be ashamed or embarrassed about.


A focus for this year will be considering failure as a learning experience. An acronym for FAIL is ‘First Attempt In Learning’. What a wonderful way for reconsidering mistakes. In making mistakes, in failing, we reflect, evaluate and consider alternatives. A shift in mindset where mistakes are ok, where failing is part of learning.
