We need to reserve the right to be wrong. Mistakes will happen. Errors will be made. We need to accept nothing is perfect.
If we fail to reserve the right to be wrong for each other, then we risk never risking anything.
We will all be too afraid to try anything new or to think something next because we don’t want to disappoint expectation or upset the status quo.
The greatest test of our right to fail is found in how we teach our children to fail. Winning is easy. Losing can be devastating.
How is it possible to live with being wrong in a society where the commoditization of being right is what runs the culture?
Are there those that rely on their failure to succeed? If so, how do we prevent the common failures from usurping those with extraordinary dreams and failed overachieving?
The right to be wrong must be viciously defended on both sides: Failing is fine; failing as a habit of action is deadly.
