It's Okay to Make Mistakes...

"A couple of hundred years ago, Benjamin Franklin shared with the world the secret of his success. Never leave that till tomorrow, he said, which you can do today. This is the man who discovered electricity. You think more people would listen to what he had to say. I don't know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I'd have to say it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if you're wrong? What if you're making a mistake you can't undo? The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can't pretend we hadn't been told. We've all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin really meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beat the hell out of never trying." – Grey’s Anatomy (Meredith Grey)


- Most of us are familiar with the saying "Never leave that till tomorrow, which you can do today.", we know it is the right thing, but none of us applies it. If we have to turn in a homework paper for next week, we start doing it the day before; if we need to help somebody, we say "i'll go help them tomorrow, it's not like it's gonna make a difference", its wrong to think this way, because you CAN make a difference, maybe that homework wasn't good enough, or maybe that person that needed your help, is not there anymore. You never know what can happen. We are humans, and we learn from our mistakes, but it's not until we get hit, that we realize what we did wrong.

- Make a Difference!
