Learn From Others People's Mistakes

 

"Some of us learn from other

peoples mistakes

and the rest of us

have to be other people"

Zig Ziglar, author, motivational speaker

 

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

Learn from others people's mistakes.  

Learning from mistakes can be a very costly lesson.

A key to learning from a mistake is to take the experience, determine what when wrong, and determine what when right. Replay the series of events in your mind that lead to the mistake. Play the mistake forward with what you did right and what you would do differently to change the mistake to a successful outcome.

You have now created a successful experience from a mistake and you have put yourself in the position in the future to learn from other peoples mistakes and to move forward.

Lou,

Don't they say that wisdom is learning from other people's  mistakes and experience is learning from your own? :)

I find myself more and more "being" theperson.  I think you can learn a lot from modeling othes, but ultimately I have found that you don't know what you don't know, know matter how much you think you know. :)

Hi Mark

Life is a continuing learning experience, hopefully we learn from our mistakes and don't repeat them.
