Learn from Mistakes. (c)1999 Roger von Oech.On his way to creating the light bulb, Edison discovered 1,800 ways not to build one. One of Madame Curie's failures was radium. Columbus was looking for India. Errors are one of life's primary learning vehicles. That's because success reinforces the way you do things. When you fail, however, you learn what's not working, and you get the opportunity to try new approaches. What have you learned from your failures?  What is the biggest mistake you might make in your current issue? What might you learn from it?
