The Best Way to Avoid Mistakes

         "Every mistake that I made-

and we all make mistakes-

came because I didn't take the time

to get all the facts."

 Charles Knight   

As I see it. . . . . . . .

The best to avoid mistakes 

Mistakes are a fact of life and we all make them, the questions, how to we respond to the mistake and do we do to prevent the mistake from recurring?   

We learn from our mistakes but only when we're willing to look at them realistically and take responsibility for our actions that has gotten us this point.  We will have to decide on the best course to remedy the mistake and look at a course of action to prevent the mistake from happing in the future.  

With this course of action we have created a valuable learning experience that can play lessons forward boosting our future success. 

Or we can be dentinal of the mistake and hope it goes away.  

Hope is not a strategy and inaction makes the situation worst.    

Intense preparation prepares us for success and lessens the changes of making a mistake. 

The best way to avoid mistakes is to prepare your self for success is through massive preparation and the wiliness to hard work. Be willing to pay the price of success in advance and you have formed a solid foundation for your success journey.

Not to be confused with taking risks.  Risks should be planned and prepared. And yes there may be failures with risks, but you learn from them.

Great quote and message. FYI, I think you want to add the word "way" somewhere in that 2nd sentence - The best to avoid mistakes  :-)

I love this, Lou!

Mistakes, to me, simply occur while practicing something new. Each mistake I make helps me learn, not repeat that error, and helps me on my way to being proficient at it.

A wonderful message as always.  Learning from our mistakes makes us grow and be better at what we do.  "...when we look at them realistically and take responsibility."

Lou, I read an article a few months back on how our reactions to making mistakes is learned early. And people who have a positive attitude can actually welcome mistakes as learning experiences. Then there is the other side of the coin....

The facts please, just the facts! There are no short cuts to proper preparation. Sometimes we forget and that is when we make mistakes. When we do, we must learn from them. Thanks for the reminder!
