Celebrate Your Amateurness

Sounds stupid, as we are driven by perfection and 0-defects, or? 

And yet learning comes from making mistakes, just remember 
when YOU as a kid flew on your knees or off the bike. Have you 
given up?

"I am best at what I can't do.
It has become my ability to feel strong and confident in these sit-
uations. I feel free to move, to listen to my heart, to learn, to act even
if that means I will make mistakes.
If you want a creative life, do what you can't and experience the 
beauty of the mistakes you make."

Quoted in A Whole New Mind, Daniel H. Pink and originally by Marcel Wanders (www.marcelwanders.com)

We definitely have to allow doing mistakes in order to learn for that world that will ever
be increasing complex in the future.
