Just a few days into 2024, I already made 2 very big and expensive mistakes.
In this episode, I share what happened and exactly why I made these mistakes, and then I talk about some possible lessons that I should learn from these mistakes.
I also spend a bit more time discussing the importance of making mistakes and the right mindset to have when it comes to mistakes in life and in language learning too.
A Learning Mindset
If you want to hear more about my mistakes, you’ll have to see the full episode to find out. What I can write about here is lessons to learn from them.
I speak about fostering a learning mindset.
This allows you to see every mistake as an experience to learn, grow, and develop into a better person.
You may not see things like this directly after making a big mistake, but after some time has passed, see if you can focus on this way of thinking.
For me, I’m going to be more open about my struggles with other people, and they may even be able to offer some solutions I hadn’t thought of.
I’m also going to try to be comfortable sitting with a problem rather than trying to solve it as soon as possible.
Have you made any big mistakes in your life?
Perhaps you could share them in the comments so I don’t feel so alone.
