Keeping Mistakes in Perspective

“The better a man is, the more mistakes he will make, for the more new things he will try. I would never promote to a top-level job a man who is not making mistakes…otherwise, he is sure to be mediocre.” – Peter Drucker

John Maxwell created this acronym to keep our mistakes in perspective:

M – Messages that give us feedback about life

I – Interruptions that should cause us to reflect and think

S – Signposts that direct us to the right path

T – Tests that push us toward greater maturity

A – Awakenings that keep us in the game mentally

K – Keys that we can use to unlock the next door of opportunity

E – Explorations that let us journey where we’ve never been before

S – Statements about our development and progress
