A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.George Bernard Shaw
This week's Motivation Monday Quote for 27th April 2020 comes from George Bernard Shaw.
George Bernard Shaw is an Irish playwright and critic.
Shaw published the text of his play “The Doctor’s Dilemma” together with a lengthy preface which included this quote in 1911.
Taking action and doing things may lead to mistakes as well as to successes; but a life spent in making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
The one significant lesson that comes out of this quote is there will be no progress if we do nothing. One example is progress made from all the theories and experiments of the scientific community through trial and errors.
In business, one have to take action to create a product, offer a service and continually take action to reach out to the target market in order to create value and generate income. Jobs are created because there is something that needs to be done. Many of these actions includes mistakes that takes place every day.
