How we learn.
We love this quote from Confucius:
“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest;
Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and
Third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
It reinforces a recent realization we had about learning from our mistakes.
When we make a single mistake, the cost or pain caused by it is usually pretty small. It’s only when we don’t reflect on and learn from that mistake that the damage adds up.
That mistake when repeated can multiply, leaving a lasting impact on our lives.
Or, we can learn from the mistake — and hopefully grow wiser in the process.
