The Road to Wisdom
The road to wisdom? — Well, it’s plain and simple to express:
Err and err
and err again
Piet Hein (1905–1996)
With a few gentle words this poem reminds that chasing perfection is NOT how we grow, and that patience and persistence can work together in harmony. In other words, keep going, keep improving and you'll get there.
So, how does anyone err "less and less"?
Through *iteration* - popular in software development and business /entrepreneurship.
To *iterate* is to:
- Take the most sensible action(s) based on what's known at the time
- Observe the outcomes and seek feedback
- Learn by analysing the outcomes and feedback
- Take further action(s) based on what worked (and what didn't) and then repeat the cycle again.
Iteration works, whether we're considering:
✅Entrepreneurship and aspects of your business
✅ Career and work
✅A sport or hobby
Until you get the big win, welcome each small one, and keep going, one step at a time 💪!
