Give yourself an advantage by intentionally identifying failures.

We often build the habit of hiding or ignoring our failures from a young age. In doing so, we miss out on a lot of potential for growth and wisdom. We set ourselves up to make the same mistakes over and over again. By mindfully discovering our past failures, we give our future selves a tremendous advantage. We can discover new insights that could lead to massive success.


  1. Select an example of your previous work.
    It could be an assignment, project, a test you took, etc.
  2. Intentionally try to identify the mistakes, failures, or any segment that you think can be improved. 
  3. Allocate a time block to work on that segment.
    Confront your shortcomings with complete honesty and find out what you can change to fix the mistake.
