Hey there everybody let's talk about mistakes. well I think most of the time mistakes are made when people are not paying attention to what they are doing sometimes people tend to think that everything will work out fine and do just what they can and not push themselves to a higher level of work. It is like being a perfectionist and an obsessive compulsive they check too many times so as to see if the work is done correctly or the thing that they do is done correctly. So being thorough makes you avoid mistakes and hope that everyone shares my thoughts on how to avoid mistakes in the future. Be thorough.

Even when you pay attention, mistakes still occur. But at least if you pay attention you can minimize the mistakes. It probably takes time to learn not to make any mistakes at all. Again, it depends on what kind of work you are assigned to do.Many students who are assigned to reread a story to be read in front of the classroom hardly ever make a mistake. Mistakes make poeple succeed because they learn from the mistakes. Isn't it right, bro?

What's up Yanzalong, You are so true practice makes perfect and that is how I see your example is, and true sometimes even though you have made everything right prepared and all mistakes still happen. But if done everything that you can and the mistake is not yours then i think you can at least say to yourself that i have done my part in trying to perfect the situation but it is not in my hands that this mistake happened. So true bro mistakes, make people smarter and and stronger.

With mistakes, people will not make mistakes again. What do you think bro? Remembering making mistakes will also make me disappointed. If only I hadn't done it, If only I had met her, I wouldn't have, I would have... bla bla bla....... All these are sense of regret that sometimes overwhelms me.

Correct my friend. I am like you too. If i am doing something, i would really review it after i have completed it. That way, i can check if there are some errors that can still be corrected. It's nice to do a nice job, actually.

Yes you find lot of mistakes when you dont pay attention.sometimes when someone is talking we also think of something else and because of this,after they talk when they ask you you could not answer coz you are listening but not paying attention to it.I remember when i am in my college years,sometimes i encounter such situation when teacher talk,it seems i listen to him butmy mind is rooming around.hehheh

Hey angel ako, Things seem to take our mind from were it is from time to time but i guess it can't be helped since life is full of things to worry about but hey, we can try to be more attentive depending on the situation, i have the same situation yesterday about listening to my girl i knew everything she was talking about but i forgot to continue something i was supposed to say and it made her mad so really paying attention is important especially in avoiding conflicts. ingatss...

That's true when it comes to work, we can avoid mistakes by being meticulous, we have to check and make sure that we have done the work accurately. But there's another kind of mistake - and I think we cannot compare it with the decisions in life. The mistakes are there for some people not because they didn't pay attention. Sometimes there are just people who would trick you with lies and you ended up with committing a mistake by believing in their good lies.

Hey there nelym001, You are truly right mistakes are avoided by being meticulous on your work and people tend to be more productive that way no wasting of time redoing stuff over again and job is done in time and people are appreciative of it being done perfect and in good time. Yupp people can be tricked to make mistakes but I think if a person is careful and vigilant towards the person being dealt with maybe mistakes on that end can be avoided too, but who has the time to check everybody up right so let's pay attention and be vigilant.

i agree with your thoughts ,peoples makes mistake for two reason first as you told in your words that when they don't pay attention and second when they are fulfill with their over confidence.and in my opinion people loss their attention just because of their over confidence.if people understand that that we don't have to be over confident because by this we loss our attention or concentration and result was in mistakes.

I agree with your thoughts too, sometimes people that are too confident forget to be diligent and also forgets to check all of there bases so the opportunity of slipping up get's a higher percentage, so let us all be confident at what we do and diligent in making sure that there is no problems that may arise.

First of all: if you talk about mistakes it is good to know what is a mistake. What can be right to one person can be called a big mistakes to an other one. Secondly: I think it's difficult always to pay 100% attention to what you do. Most people their lives are full with all the things they are forced to do. So we are multi-tasking day and night. Women even more as men. Many things we do, we do automatically. Like driving a car etc. This is necessary otherwise it will cost us way too much energy and our brains get crazy. Mistakes are not a problem, it's also an " art" to know how to correct them and especially from mistakes we learn. There is no need to be perfect and a perfectionist and also obsessive people have a very hard life since it's never good enough.

Well for me, I think it is very important to focus on important things prioritizing what you need to give 100% of your attention and less for those not requiring that extreme attention. Yupp i guess not all important to one is for the other so let us try to be more driven to only the things that our life requires rather than the one's to others but also without stepping on somebody Else's toes. Thanks wake up kitty.

Mistakes can happen only when man can't live in practical life.sometimes they become eccentric when they live in your own world then they made a mistake. so, be careful and do less mistake as much as you can.
