Make Excellent Mistakes

What kind of excellent mistake have you made that led you to a later success?

As Daniel Pink, author of The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You'll Ever Need says, "The most successful people make spectacular mistakes--huge, honking screw ups! Why? They're trying to do something big. But each time they make a mistake, they get a little better and move a little closer to excellence."

Are you willing to make mistakes on your road to success?


  1. As we get older, we make mistakes and some people make many while others learn from the mistakes of people around them. They say you learn from your mistakes and that is very true. I have made small mistakes in life that have taught me good lessons in life, but nothing major yet that has led me to a better success. It’s still too early to tell if I will make more mistakes or not, and I am sure I will because we are all humans.

  2. No one is perfect. As humans, we all learn from mistakes, whether they are mistakes made by others or mistakes we make ourselves. I believe that some mistakes are made by those who have the ability to think out side the box. Everyone has different points of views and ideas as to how they perceive things and later, we determine whether things are right or wrong. If we don't make mistakes, we can never learn how to become better.

    Looking back at the question asked by the author of The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The last Career Guide You'll Ever Need, Daniel Pink, I can say that I am willing to make mistakes on my road to success. If I don't make mistakes, I don't think I will ever Know if I am going on the right path or not. My mistakes and my efforts to perfect those mistakes will show my dedication I have for my work.

  3. Practice makes perfect. Not really, but you know what I mean. You have to keep trying if you want to be successful. Most of the time, things don't work out exactly the way we want them to at first. It takes someone with diligence and strength to keep pushing past all the setbacks. I've made a lot of mistakes already and I'm prepared to make a lot more down the road.
