When I have a good game of golf I am very happy and often have the passing thought, "What am I doing right." All I know the ball is going in the hole with fewer shots and I am not getting into trouble. I never go to my golf pro and ask him what am I doing right. However when I am having trouble I am busy trying to learn what I am doing wrong. I learn from my mistakes not my successes.
I wonder if I had the attitude that every bad shot is a learning opportunity. I expect it would really help my game.
In business, all our learning comes from our challenges, not our successes. Is there a practical way of making this idea a reality?
I expect this aspect is part of human nature and our reaction depends how good we are feeling about ourselves at the moment.
However I suggest we all ask oursleves "what can I learn from this experience?"
