Lessons Others Taught Me 8 - Rajan Bala (Make New Mistakes)

On one of our lunches at Bangalore, Rajan Bala, while talking about learning, told me this gem

- 'If you're making the same mistake, you are not learning. You are learning when you make new mistakes.'

Until then I always thought we should not make a mistake. I never connected mistakes to learning. Repeating same mistake is not learning. However making new mistakes means that we have learned the old process after the initial mistake and are now learning something new.

Very freeing perspective. Thanks Rajan saab.
