On Growth and Learning

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“How can I better myself?”

“Learn from your mistakes.

Realize that mistakes are an integral part of the process. Without mistakes there is no process.

“How about learning from the mistakes of others?”

“That can only be a supplement. There’s no substitute for making your own mistakes.

Growth means learning from mistakes and constantly making new mistakes.

It’s an incremental open-ended iterative process, an infinite upward spiral. Every mistake a potential growth cycle.”
