Fascinating. This book explained the unexpected benefits of being wrong, which the author delves deeply into why and how we react to errors, we can learn how to acknowledge mistakes without foisting the blame to other people or beating ourselves up. That allows us to be more open to the valuable lessons that mistakes can offer and will ultimately improve our work and relationships with our bosses, family, and people around us.

Making mistakes doesn't make you better but examining what happens make you better. 

Most of the time fear of making mistake is a cudgel that hangs over so many of us, preventing us from not only taking risks in our personal and professional lives but even more important, really accepting the truth that we all are human and imperfect. Of course there is a big mistakes and small mistakes and varying levels of consequence. A pilot error that crashes a plane full of people is not in the same league as a minor mistake in a law brief or forgetting to pick up your sibling at college, right? 

The author also, encourage readers to emphasize the "good" part of their mistakes. That doesn't necessarily mean that the mistake themselves is good, but their aftermath-tracking back why we made them learn from them, can be very helpful in avoiding the mistake in the future.

Everyone makes mistakes, but how we deal with it, that defines us. We no need to be proud of the mistakes we made, but we can be proud that we grew wiser from them.

As we know that mistakes happen. We need to learn from them, we also need to know how to apologize. 
A proper apology has 3 elements: an acknowledgment of the fault or offense, regret from it, and responsibility for it and if possible, a way to fix the problem. 

From the mistake, we do better next time and this is how we learn as a people. 

If we can't apologize properly for our mistake, or accept others' genuine apologies, then we haven't learned all we can from our mistake. An apology isn't separate from the mistakes, or accept others' genuine expression of remorse and offer of accountability aims not only to repair what went wrong in the past but to help build greater understanding and trust in the future.

Read it, smile, learn, be surprised, then rejoice in your newly found power of imperfection.
