It’s Good to Get Things Wrong Sometimes

No Comments

Ever feel anxious about getting things wrong?  It’s ok.  Actually, it might be better than ok.  Because getting it wrong could be your best way to get it right.


Steer clear of being an expert. Even when you’re a teacher or leader, try not to put yourself in a position where you need to be so right all the time.


I know that’s tough to do when you’re supposed to be in charge. “If I’m not right, why would anyone listen to me?” Well there are lots of good reasons, that have something to do with how you are, how people feel about being around you. And chances are, if it feels right to be around you, you’re not getting things too wrong!

Just thinking of Tara and me, we’re getting things wrong – or at least not quite right – all the time. It’s sensing those things when they happen, playing with it all in the weeks that follow, that helps us keep making these Strala courses better – more usable, more helpful, more expansive – every time.

If we were always just getting it right – in our own minds – I’m not sure we’d have much ground to improve.  And without improving, I don’t think we’d keep doing this. Expanding, being able to do more, is something we all want in our lives.  So much of what’s good in all this is getting better – all of us – evolving and growing together.


Let yourself be a beginner. Let yourself be you, always. If you’re here right where you are – not so much thinking about needing to be someplace else – there’s a little less to worry about. And a lot more that’s possible.
