I just read something very interesting in this book “How We Decide” by Jonah Lehrer.
Some where in the 3rd chapter he wrote that apparently our brains are never meant to learn anything new unless we try it out. His argument for that chapter is that we learn only through trial and error and to fail is to give your brain a super fast learning lesson.
Well obviously if you keep failing the same way you’re quite a fool but if you learn to fail in different other ways, you’re bound to succeed. Much like how Edison made the lightbulb…apparently 1000 trials.
And if you’re still afraid to do anything because you’re afraid of failure, you’re much like that baby that never took his first step because he’s afraid that in that first step he will fall.
According to Niels Bohr the Danish Physicist: An expert is “a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.”
Yup! I’m definitely aiming to make all the mistakes I can!
