Ripples #648: Lessons Learned!
For our tribe of 29,555 busy people who share encouragement and gratitude.
Oct 24, 2011
The mistakes of our past are not
a depiction of ourselves, but rather
a list of lessons learned on life’s journey.

Everything you learn
will help you to solve
What you don’t learn
will cause your problems.

This might be a good week to pause and reflect on what you have learned so
far this year in school, work, and/or life. I’m intrigued that both of the
above quotes (which were awesomely crafted and submitted by our own
Ripplers!) make it easier to re-frame something that you may have thought as
a “mistake” or a “failure” into an opportunity to learn.
There is still plenty of time before the year ends to take those lessons
and make sure that 2011 is a year of growth. Ponder, then act!
