How to Learn From Your Mistakes

Everybody makes mistakes.
And everybody should make mistakes. They are unavoidable when we step outside of our comfort zones. Avoiding mistakes means avoiding growth.
But we can’t repeat our mistakes. We need to learn from them. When we do, we turn negatives into positives and move forward. When we don’t, we simply run in place.
In this episode of The Lede, Demian and I share personal stories of mistakes we’ve made — some big and some small — and how we learned from them, and we describe the thought process necessary to do so consistently.
We discuss:

Recovering from technical errors (notably, a rather embarrassing one Jerod made recently)
Walking away from security in pursuit of happiness
Self-compassion in the face of mistakes
Why it’s okay to want recognition for your hard work
How to mobilize into action quickly when things go wrong
Letting go of stubbornness in favor of learning
