Creative error

  Hockey star Wayne Gretzky’s teammates occasionally saw this strange scene: Gretzky would fall while practicing alone on the ice. The world’s greatest hockey player fell like a schoolboy. Although this scene may seem surprising, it is actually completely reasonable. Although Gretzky is proficient in skating, once he is determined to improve himself, he must do his best to challenge the limits of his abilities. This means that Gretzky has to try, fail, and try again, although this seems stupid.
  It is not fun to feel stupid. However, it is absolutely necessary to be willing to be stupid and willing to take the risk of taking the pain of making mistakes, because constantly “trying, failing, and trying again” is the way to promote the growth of the brain and form new connections with the outside world. Remember, when it comes to talent development, mistakes are not real mistakes, but road signs that guide your progress.
  In some places, students are encouraged to make “creative mistakes.” This is a way to establish rules and encourage students to do things that might make others feel strange and dangerous—in fact, it is to push students to the edge of ability. Sweet zone.
  Companies will do the same. Google provides employees with “20% of the time”, that is, engineers can spend 20% of their working time on private projects that they are passionate about and unapproved because they are more likely to take risks on these projects. I have been in contact with many companies, they will let employees sign a “contract” to ensure that employees are willing to take the risk of making mistakes. The e-commerce company living community in the Washington area provides employees with a rule of thumb: make a decision that scares you at work once a week.
  Regardless of the strategy adopted, the goal of this approach is the same: to encourage people to achieve their goals and redefine mistakes so that mistakes are no longer simply judgments of right and wrong, but information that guides you in the right direction.
