Make New Mistakes

We all make mistakes. All the time. It’s inevitable. Nature intended us to make mistakes — it’s how we learn.

And yet — there is an important distinction: Make old mistakes and you just repeat the missteps others have made many times before you. Make new mistakes and you learn something. New mistakes become your competitive advantage — they drive the learning which will allow you to differentiate yourself in the marketplace.

Thus: Make plenty new mistakes. Learn. Build your competitive edge. And avoid old mistakes at all cost.
