Thought of the day – Learning from mistakes checklist
· Accepting responsibility makes learning possible.

· Don’t equate making mistakes with being a mistake.

· You can’t change mistakes, but you can choose how to respond to them.

· Growth starts when you can see room for improvement.

· Work to understand why it happened and what the factors were.

· What information could have avoided the mistake?

· What small mistakes, in sequence, contributed to the bigger mistake?

· Are there alternatives you should have considered but did not?

· What kinds of changes are required to avoid making this mistake again? What kinds of change are difficult for you?

· How do you think your behavior should/would change in you were in a similar situation again?

· Work to understand the mistake until you can make fun of it (or not want to kill others that make fun).

· Don’t over-compensate: the next situation won’t be the same as the last.

Joke of the day
Lawyer: "What was the first thing your husband said to you when he woke that morning?"
Witness: "He said, ‘Where am I, Cathy?’"
Lawyer: "And why did that upset you?"
Witness: "My name is Susan."
Have a great day!
