  1. So true! I’ve always believed that succeeding on the first try is not beneficial. It might have been dumb luck and no lesson learned. Trial and error make a person conscious of why something was successful. Great “M” choice, Debbie!

  2. I love this quote and it’s so true. Like Leanne above, I am (she says was!) a perfectionist. I hate seeing I’ve made a mistake especially on a published blog or words, e-book. Yet, that is how I learn for next time. Happy Easter!

  3. Yes agree. The only one who hasn’t made a mistake is one who hasn’t tried at all. The worst mistakes are often the best lessons!

    Stopped by from the #atozchallenge

  4. one more gem of a quote… we are trying to get our little girl to learn that it is ok to make mistakes (she is kind of a perfectionist at 11!! and on the one hand, while totally ready to jump into dangers unknown, on the other, not ready to make mistakes…)

  5. So true that we learn from our mistakes. As a pedantic perfectionist, making a mistake always horrifies me and I do my best to correct it as soon as possible. 🙂 Coming up on week three of the A to Z. Have a good one!

  6. Visiting from A to Z – I’ve made a number of mistakes in my efforts for the A to Z, to be sure. I have some ideas why this is. Now I have to analyze my efforts, and possibly change my focus and my goals. I was feeling down until I realized that this experience has been invaluable. – without this trying, I never would have learned.
