Today is Rubber Eraser day.  Yes – really – it really is.  I’m not making it up!  What I found thought provoking is Rubber Eraser Day comes the day after Reach as High as You Can Day.

Think about it – when you STRETCH yourself to reach as high as you can, when you push yourself out of your comfort zone, when you implement new ideas, you are bound to make some “mistakes.”

It’s unrealistic to think you can try something new and do it perfectly the first time.   The most important part of the new experience is to figure out what worked – and what you want to do differently the next time.   When you make mistakes, you want to extract the lesson from the experience.

However, sometimes we let the “mistakes” pull us back.  We let the mistakes discourage us.  We let the mistakes hold us back from reaching as high as we can.

My tip to mitigate being “pulled back,” celebrate Rubber Eraser Day and “erase” the past and so you can move forward with confidence.  Learn from the experience, then erase the negative feeling associated with the experience, and move on.
