“Mistakes are a map. Failure is a flashlight. Use both to find and forge your path.” –Rob Schwartz
Iterate: do something…reflect…then do it again, better. Build an upwards spiral of mistakes and failure leading you toward your goals. The more you fail, reflect, and try again, the faster you’ll learn.
Spoiler: this doesn’t just apply to Design Technology! Practice failing. A lot. Learn to use mistakes and failures as guides.
