Why we make mistakes

  1. 1. WHY WE MAKE MISTAKES? *Dr.T.V.Rao MD I believe if we are making mistakes we are Human, it goes on without ending some realise early, some late and few never. Today we are disturbed by too many facts than in the past with proliferation of Internet, I made many mistakes with every purchase and make decisions I take, when I look into too much information, We make mistakes because of flawed 'noisy' information going into the brain, rather than because of miscalculations by the brain itself, new research shows. Experts from Princeton University, U.S., have discovered that the brain is able to process information it receives correctly, but struggles when that input contains errors, or 'noise'. Neuroscientists have long debated whether bad decisions result from noise in the external information - or sensory input - or because the brain made mistakes when tallying that information. All humans make mistakes while working, except some senior professors who do not do anything, so as teacher we have to put up with mistakes of people we teach after all they have just entered the profession. A said by George Bernard ShawA life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing. With every mistake that we make we discover more and more about ourselves, about who we are, about our limits, about our capabilities, about what we can and cannot do. They help us be more compassionate and more tolerant with others and ourselves. As a medical professional I feel that my ignorance contributed much too my mistakes rather than doing a mistakes in performing a procedure. I am wise in many matters today I opened my eyes to my mistakes by making mistakes you will in fact learn valuable life lessons and you will become a happy learner. There is so much we can all learn from our mistakes, and the moment we see them as lessons rather than mistakes, we will no longer have this fear of encountering them along the journey in professional life or even personal life. Just read Al Franken,Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it’s a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from. ~When we know we are making mistakes and realize we know how to put up with mistakes of many around. MISTAKES TEACH us how to forgive othersone of the greatest lessons you will learn from making mistakes are forgiveness. With every mistake that you’ll make, you will learn how important it is to forgive yourself and many of the people around you. You will understand that you are not perfect and that perfection doesn’t really exist, only our intentions of doing our best. And who wants to be perfect anyways? Perfection leaves no room for improvement. Life means realizing the mistakes we do in every day living. If you don’t make mistakes how can you expect to GROW and to EVOLVE as a human being? How many of us get stuck because they allow the fear of making mistakes to paralyze them? How can we expect to learn anything new if we don’t allow ourselves to make mistakes? MISTAKES ARE STEPPING STONES TO HAPPINESS You gain confidence, courage and experience every time you make a new mistake in a very narrow field and in time you will get better and better at the things you love to do. Remember Thomas Edison? He failed more than 10,000 times while working on the light bulb and in the end he succeeded. When you know exactly what you

Every today whenever I make mistakes I think about the though of Albert Einstein -“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”Many mistakes by us will happen without our consent “"How We Look Without Seeing, Forget Things in Seconds, and Are All Pretty Sure We Are Way Above Average.If people spent as much time and energy acknowledging their mistakes as they do justifying their bad decisions and figuring out how to dodge responsibility, the world would be a much more productive place. You can be sure that the people who are unwilling to own up to their mistakes are the same ones who don't learn from those mistakes. And thus we have a never-ending cycle of denial and repeat. Just believe there is no auto correction to the mistakes we make without our consent and acceptance. We don't just learn more when we're open to mistakes, we learn deeper. Research tells us that if we're only concerned about getting the right answer, we don't always learn the underlying concepts that help us truly understand whatever we're trying to figure out. Mistakes need to be seen not as a failure to learn, but as a guide to what still needs to be learned. As Thomas Edison said, "I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.We're all going to make mistakes; it's just a question of choosing how we approach them. Are we going to finger-point or pretend they didn't happen? Or are we going to take responsibility, try to learn from them and forgive others and ourselves? We have the choice. The only option we don't have is perfection; never try to be perfect concealing your mistakes. (Sources many good thoughts) *Dr.T.V.Rao MD Professor of Microbiology Freelance writer
