If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not doing anything. I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes. (John Wooden, late all-star basketball coach)

No one really likes to make mistakes. We work hard to avoid them. But slipups are a part of life and Wooden suggests that to make a mistake is to affirm that you, at least, are doing something. Elbert Hubbard writes, “The greatest mistake one can make is to be afraid of making one.” So don’t let occasional errors upset you. Learn from them and move on with care.

A quiet spirit can overcome even great mistakes. (Ecclesiastes 10:4)
