Mistakes = More Data


I spent last week at the beach with two of my favorite people, my children, Connor and Allyson. They're 20 now and usually away at college so our rare time together is even sweeter these days.


Connor and Allyson are such good people that, even if I wasn't their mom, I would hope we'd be friends. 


Much of what I write and talk about I've tried out first on my own children. For example, the concept of "Lesson Learned," which is one of the five steps I share to help you cultivate your attitude of gratitude. 


Whenever they would make a mistake or do something wrong, whether it was failing to study for a test and getting a low grade or hanging out with the wrong kids and getting in trouble, I would ask them the lesson learned. This was a great teaching tool and it reduced (although not necessarily eliminated!) the chance that they'd do it again. 


I think it also encouraged them to take more calculated risks, like applying for leadership roles in school and at work.


So, my question to you is: When you experience a setback or disappointment in your professional or personal life, do you look for the lesson learned? After all, mistakes are simply more data. 


Inspire others by sharing your story of a lesson learned on my Facebook Page or reply back to me. I love hearing from you!

Have You Heard What They're Saying?
"Simple but brilliant! That's Tricia Molloy's 'Work-Life Balance Wisdom' program. 
"Tricia spoke to more than 600 AT&T employees at our headquarters in Dallas and via webcast to AT&T offices throughout the country. She got us to think about our lives in a different way. Her empowering message struck a chord with so many of us, regardless of our level or lifestyle. We followed up the event with a book giveaway to encourage participants to improve their balance by making conscious choices-like cleaning out technical clutter and using positive affirmations. 
"Even a respected senior executive who is known for her commitment to balance said she learned some new strategies that she'll apply right away."
Tiffany Jenkins, Director of Audit Services
