The wisdom of Abraham Lincoln (part 7)

"My great concern is not whether you have failed,
                 but whether you are content with your failure."

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)
16th President of the United States

I tell myself, and I have confided to folks I work with, that a mistake is a temporary wrong thing, it goes away when it is corrected.

I'm not afraid to admit that I made a mistake.

Companies and organizations would be much better places to work if bosses and everyone else could accept admission of mistakes without doling out or fearing punishment.

Heck, life is a series of prolonged successes and—I'm being optimistic here—corrected mistakes.

Do some dabbling today, and then separate the mistakes from the successes, see what you get….
