In the wake of a mistake, magic can happen. Mistakes expose fault lines and open opportunities to make things better. Some of the coolest things come from mistakes.
But getting there can be so uncomfortable. There is the vulnerability to put yourself out there and try something. If it doesn’t work, you find yourself in the position of admitting a mistake, sometimes to your boss or family or friends.
If we can create environments where mistakes are tolerated, we invite magic. If we can step up to create a space where mistakes are appreciated, the magic is inevitable.
