“So…Who Died?”

This question completely changed my outlook on making mistakes.

When I was in tech school (many years ago) and someone in class messed up (sometimes me), we’d get flustered and worried, but Mr. Fields would calmly ask, “So…who died?”

His point was we didn’t do anything that can’t be fixed. We are going to make mistakes. Most all of them are fixable. It’ll be ok.
