Why mistakes are good

When we are little, we just try, and fail, and try again, repeatedly, until one day we can crawl, stand, stagger, walk, skip, jump and run. Our massive brains adapt, learn and utilise experience. We get feedback from people (parents) around us; if we get rewarded, we do it again. It is not so different as adults, except that we are more wary of judgement from others. However, it’s important for you to know that making mistakes is OK. Learning to feel safe about getting things wrong, learning in increments, trying things out, asking for help and then doing them again and again and again, is absolutely crucial.
