How to Deconstruct a Failure and Learn Something

Article by The Global Spiritualists Association.

Regardless of who you are and where you live, you may have noticed something: no one is perfect! We all make mistakes. It seems to be inevitable. Sometimes we make pretty significant errors, such as marrying the wrong person; sometimes our mistakes are smaller though. You may have forgotten to write down a bank withdrawal. Sometimes parents show favoritism to one child causing the other ones to feel hurt, angry or upset.

If you are human, then you are prone to mistakes. But one thing that some of us miss is the importance of deconstructing that mistake to see what happened and why. For instance, in the example of forgetting to write down a bank withdrawal:

Is this your first time to forget or is it something that happens occasionally?

Could this point to a bigger problem concerning your organizational skills?

Can you attribute this to just being absent-minded? Maybe you should be taking a nutritional supplement for your memory.

Each time you’re willing to sit down and really think about what happened, how and why it happened, etc. you give yourself a golden opportunity to learn unique things about who you are as a person. The more we learn, the more we can correct those areas that need it.
