Learning From Mistakes – A Positive Lesson

January 14, 2010

Certainly, we all make mistakes in life. During the recession, and while working on business transactions, business people are bound to make even more mistakes. Pressure often makes it difficult to work with a clear head, as do money issues.

President of Quadrant Management, Inc, Alan Quasha, discussed pressure and mistakes with Leaders magazine recently. He explained that he started doing meditation when you was quite young, to help him to be at peace with himself and to allow him to juggle his many commitment. As he said, Instead of getting excited about mistakes, I recognize that making mistakes – whether they’re made by me or somebody else who works in our organization – is a fact of life. And mistakes are a very important part of learning.”

Certainly, as Alan Quasha goes on to explain, you hope not to make the same mistakes over and over again. It is important, he explains, to approach your mistakes calmly and to remain relaxed about the mistakes that you make.
