Ph.D. in Mistakes
Are your mistakes just mistakes?
They say you should not label yourself. Your acting will do.
No, in my case I’m sure I can give myself labels.
Failed developer, failed engineer, failed manager, failed consultant, failed writer, failed husband, failed son, failed human.
But I’m good at dreaming. So, I still have hope.
I thought I was not qualified to advise about anything, but I realized that, instead, I have precise and reliable knowledge to share.
Take what I say and do what remains. It works.
I thought to sell a course based on this method. The only flaw is that sometimes they could believe precisely in what I say and then issue me because of the consequences.
Still, that’s real knowledge. You become a better human because you failed someone. You become a better engineer because a client took pictures of the unexpected results. You become a better manager because things took an unexpected turn and you said OMG.
Of course, if you realized what happened.
That’s where the Ph.D. comes into play.
Get a Ph.D. in (recognizing your) Mistakes, and it will be the best possible investment to improve your life.
Or maybe I shouldn’t advise you? I’m confused…
