The article discusses as to what people can learn from their mistakes. All sorts of people make mistakes. Some are relatively insignificant, while others can be life or career changing. Sometimes people get an inkling that the step they are about to take is fraught with peril and they should look before they leap. And sometimes people are completely clueless and the ensuing disaster takes them by surprise. People should all learn not to beat themselves (or others) up for such mistakes, appreciating that in every mistake is buried a nugget of wisdom.
