Because every mistake we make falls directly on us. If we follow other people’s thinking, if mistakes are made, we can dodge any personal blame.

We can be sure we’ll be making them. We can never be sure we’ll own them. And it’s difficult to learn from something if we don’t feel ownership nor desire.

When we look at mistakes as you have suggested, we become wiser. Slowly and steadily, as we continue to fill our lifetime quota of human errors.
