Welcome the 25th issue of this newsletter! Seems fitting to hit such a landmark only halfway into the first month of 2016. By that I mean, progress already feels natural but so do the speed bumps.
I love the positive New Year posts all around the web but what about when, inevitably, the momentum slows, mistakes happens and goals aren’t met?
Some honest posts about mistakes & failure popped up this week and I liked it. It wasn’t schadenfreude
but introspection. Then Shane Parrish wrote about how it’s not the failures that define us so much as how we respond to them
: “The key to learning from mistakes is to admit them without excuses or defensiveness, rub your nose in them a little, and make the changes you need to make to grow going forward. If you can’t admit your mistakes, you won’t grow.”
In other words, keep track of the steps forward & the steps backward. Learn from each step as you keep going. As always, thanks for reading!
