It’s ok not to get it right the first time.

Charlotte is standing next to the Taj Mahal, holding her hand out to make it look like she is holding the top of the building, however she has missed. She has brown hair and sunglasses and is smiling. The sky is blue

Can you see what I was trying to do here? The classic - but I was so far from it, the first time around (much to my husband’s entertainment).

We don’t always get things right first time, and that’s worth celebrating sometimes. It can be good to remind ourselves that imperfection is normal (@nicolaraewickham is great for more on this).

Some questions that you could ask, when you’re ready to reflect on something that didn’t go right first time:

🌱 What did you learn?

🌱 How can you take that learning to make positive change?

🌱What will it feel like once you’re there, knowing you have gained strength from the initial ‘mistake’

The @amazingif Squiggly Careers podcast on building a high trust culture is excellent for talking about the strengths and learning we can gain from talking about things that didn’t go perfectly.

I’d love to hear from you in my inbox about the mistakes that you’ve learnt the most from. Any photos like this to share with me?! 🤦🏻‍♀️😂
