Making the most from your Mistakes

Have you ever made significant mistakes? Not a tiny error but one of those blunders you’ll never forget and always be sorry for.


If  YES, then invariably you have two options :


Option 1:Keep feeling guilty, stress yourself, and stay put.


Option 2:Learn from the mistake and move on in life.


If option 2 is your choice, then this post is meant for you.


As long as we learn from our mistakes, we may use that knowledge to make better decisions in the future.


Here is the DRAW formula to help you recover from a blunder and make the most of your mistakes.


Diagnose the Error


Reframe the event


Apply the learnings


Walk Forward


Diagnose the Error: Instead of making excuses or passing the blame to someone else, take ownership of your actions and determine what went wrong. Whatever had to happen has already happened; instead of covering up, accept responsibility and own up to your error.


Reframe the event: Consider how committing this error could be beneficial. There might be an opportunity to accomplish something, or at the very least learn something, here. What exactly is that chance? Think for a long time, and don’t stop until you’ve come up with something worthwhile. Take a minute to consider the error you made. It’s time to take all you’ve learned so far and apply it to your future endeavors. Consider the choices you made leading up to this blunder. Consider your emotional condition and what prompted you to make the decisions that led to this result. Think about what you can learn from this event.


Apply the learnings: Take what you’ve learned and put it into practice. It all starts with determining your best path of action for the future. What’s the next step you can do to make things better? Or, instead, what could you do differently next time? You’ve probably discovered some places where you can improve. Obtain anything that will assist you in moving forward more positively. Consider what you might need to learn or know. Consider the talents you’ll need to develop, the resources you’ll need to acquire, and the help you’ll need.


Walk Forward: Prepare yourself for future scenarios. One approach to do this is to improve your problem-solving skills, as well as your capacity to think objectively, critically, and imaginatively. Another option is to learn from the mistakes of others. Read books or talk to people in person.


It is critical to remember that you are not the sum total of your mistakes. You, too, will achieve steady progress if you learn from every event and are willing to adapt and adjust your line of action.
