How to learn from your mistakesBy Scott Burken, July 17 2005Retrieved from: http://www.scottberkun.com/essays/44-how-to-learn-from-your-mistakes/You can only learn from a mistake after you admit youve made it. As soon as you start blaming other people (or the universe itself) you distance yourself from any possible lesson. But if you courageously stand up and honestly say This is my mistake and I am responsible the possibilities for learning will move towards you. Admission of a mistake, even if only privately to yourself, makes learning possible by moving the focus away from blame assignment and towards understanding. Wise people admit their mistakes easily. They know progress accelerates when they do.

This advice runs counter to the cultural assumptions we have about mistakes and failure,namely that they are shameful things. Were taught in school, in our families, or at work to feel guilty about failure and to do whatever we can to avoid mistakes. This sense of shame combined with the inevitability of setbacks when attempting difficult things explains why many people give up on their goals: theyre not prepared for the mistakes andfailures theyll face on their way to what they want. Whats missing in many peoples beliefs about success is the fact that the more challenging the goal, the more frequent and difficult setbacks will be. The larger your ambitions, the more dependent you will be on your ability to overcome and learn from your mistakes.

Life in Five Short ChaptersBy Portia NelsonCHAPTER 1

I walk down the street.There's a deep hole in the sidewalk.And I fall in.I am lost. I am helpless. It isn't my fault.It takes forever to find a way out.

CHAPTER 2

I walk down the same street.There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.I pretend I don't see it. I fall in again.I can't believe I am in the same place.But it isn't my fault.It takes a long time to get out.

CHAPTER 3

I walk down the same street and there is a deep hole in the sidewalk.I see it there, and still I fall in.It's a habit.But my eyes are open and I know where I am.It is my fault and I get out immediately.

CHAPTER 4

I walk down the same street.There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.I walk around it.

CHAPTER 5

I walk down a different street.

How are poetry and prose different?PoetryWritten in lines that may or may not be punctuated following standard rulesLines are divided into stanzasHas rhyme schemeHas rhythm

ProseWritten in sentences and punctuated following appropriate grammatical rulesLines are divided into paragraphsHas an organizational pattern

How are poetry and prose same?Both a poem and other forms of literature can have a THEME or message for the reader.Authors and poets write with a personal TONE

Poems can convey a MOOD to the reader much like a good piece of fiction does. Both stories and poems are written from a particular POINT OF VIEW or perspective from which the story is told.

A narrative poem can include characters, setting, and plot much like a short story.
