Test new ideas, try new marketing campaigns or even attempt something crazy. If it doesn’t work out, oh well at least you tried. Maybe you spent a few thousand dollars to build a mobile app and it turned out to be a flop, that’s nothing really… at least you had the opportunity to be wrong. Plus, I’m sure you learned something and now the next time you try to build something you have experience to do it differently.
I’m always trying to learn new tools and skills; sometimes getting value out of them and some even improve how I work. These new skills can sometimes make jobs easier, but even if they don’t work they give me the chance to look at what I’m doing in a different way. Many of the worlds best inventions and discoveries started out as a mistake. You often have to fail in order to find the right answer. At least people took the chance at something, even with the possibility of failure. Its important to try new things, you never know what can happen. Success or failure, its all part of the surprise that keeps work and life interesting.
Don’t be afraid of being wrong and one of the potentials of being wrong is that it really might end up being right.
