Happy Independence Day, everyone! Today I’ve been thinking about freedoms. We are very fortunate here in that we are free to vote, free to express ourselves, and free to think.
For this blog, of course, the freedom to think is most important. From there, we are free to learn, to fail, to learn again, and to grow. I very much hope that everyone exercises those freedoms every day, especially the freedom to fail. Mistakes and imperfections are difficult for most of us. But adaptation and learning cannot occur without failure.
So while you are enjoying your barbeques, pool parties, and fireworks, please take a moment and be grateful for your freedom to fail. I think you will find a glorious new opportunities for wisdom there.
