Allow Intelligent Mistakes
Allowing mistakes is the first step for encouraging invention, innovation and initiatives. As a parent, as an elder, as a boss and as a leader of a society, we tend to analyze and criticize actions of juniors. We develop an attitude of I AM OK, YOU ARE NOT OK. In this process either we create rebellions or dumbs.
Allowing mistake does not mean that you allow dumb and repeated mistakes. There is a saying “if you never commit mistakes then you are in the category of God otherwise you are a human being”. Nonetheless, if you repeat mistakes then you fall in the category of fools. Apart from your juniors, allow yourself to make mistakes as well. Do not feel bad on realizing your own mistakes; do not blame othersfor the same.
When failures and mistakes are analyzed chances of repeating the same will drop drastically. Usually, mistakes occur due to ignorance, lack of knowledge and poor systems. When we do critical analysis,
then we can find innovative ways of not repeating them again.
