How much of a mistake do you consider a mistake you made to be if you learned something from it? Are you the type who retells yourself the story to reduce the value of the mistake with a silver lining, even if you don’t reduce it quantitatively like making it half a mistake? Or are you the type who stick with a mistake is a mistake? Or perhaps you go the other way to consider no mistake to be one if you learned something from it like I once did? I changed from that view because I found I was letting myself off the hook too easily for my liking regarding accountability.
