Being too careless can result in failure or poor performance. Trying to be perfect can also result in failure or in unhappy frustration with ones self. We need to have a balance in our view of being perfect, and of making mistakes. This applies to just about anything you do in your life, now and in the future.
I am going to read a short essay to you. You will take notes, out-of-the-air. This is a learning/practice session. Afterwards I will ask some of you questions, to see how well you did note taking.
Read the essay "I Nevar Make Mistaks!"
"Never make a Mistake." Is this a good and reasonable Life-Goal? Why?
What are the three worries that some people go through while and after making a decision?
What are the 5 "better perspectives" mentioned?
1. "That's good enough to get the job done, with the time I have available."
2. "Given my present degree of knowledge and understanding, what seems like the best course of action or decision for now?"
3. "What have I learned from this, and how can I use it to make a wiser decision next time?"
4. "Life consists of a series of decisions, all of which are based on insufficient information!"
5. "It doesn't really matter much."
Here are some suggestions on how you could have taken these notes. They are suggestions only. You don't have to do it this way. Then go over them verbally.
