Diversity in Learning: Embracing Trial-and-Error

At Meticulon we recognize there are many ways to learn new skills. As we enter the back-to-school season, we wanted to share some tips on how to embrace the trial-and-error approach to learning.

Often, we are taught to pass tests, earn good grades, and avoid making mistakes, however, this mindset can hinder our learning. When we actively avoid making mistakes, we are reluctant to push ourselves outside of our comfort zone and try something new.

At Meticulon we value and understand that shifting from a pass-and-fail approach to a trial-and-error approach when learning is crucial to many individuals’ success.

Below are tips on how you can embrace the trial-and-error approach to learning:

  1. Set small, achievable goals.
  2. Permit yourself to fail.
  3. Embrace messiness; it’s a path to mastery.
  4. Persist despite obstacles to cultivate resilience.
  5. Gauge progress individually, not comparatively.
  6. Prioritize progress over end results.

Learning a new skill takes time, patience, and practice. Mistakes are a necessary part of the learning process and often lead to rewarding successes.
