I found the following quote to be so appropriate:
“An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes which can be made in a very narrow field” — Physicist Niels Bohr.
I feel as if I am well on the way to making as many as I can, as quickly as I can!
The thing about making mistakes is that they are instructive, and teach us how not to approach certain issues and problems. In my line of work in assisting Caribbean companies, for example, it’s easy to think that what works elsewhere in the world should work here.
This remains one of the easiest mistakes to make.
