Comedian Bob Smiley recently Tweeted: “Why does Soy Sauce & pancake syrup come in practically the same bottle? Ruined my pancakes & my morning.” He attached the accompanying picture on the right.
I say when life gives you soy sauce pancakes, make Moo Shoo Pork.
When you make a mistake, sometimes you have to run with it my friend. Trying to soak up the soy sauce won’t work. Trying to eat it as is won’t work, but from the mistake, you can make an entirely new creation…and have lunch ready hours in advance.
Sometimes you have to fix your mistake, but often you will find that the mistake just led you down a different path. Some of our greatest inventions and discoveries came from mistakes.
Allow your mistakes to lead you. See where they take you. Don’t be in a rush to correct, but be willing to embrace your mistakes.
Learning from your mistakes is great. Taking advantage of them is even better.
