In the long line of chronological linear history, there are many mistakes just as there are victories. Nobody needs to be told how nice victories can make a person feel, but we all harp over mistakes, made by ourselves, but more significantly by others.
We constantly suffer from mistakes made by others. Other peoples made decisions base on what they see and understand, often at the expense of others, us included. so we get angry, thinking how selfish that person can be, not even considering your feelings when he/she made that decision, which sometimes end up as a ‘mistake’. So we felt victimised.
We have every right to get angry, but mistakes happen. We need to understand that we all make decisions blind, informations needed to make sound decisions is often absent, or incomplete, at best. Decision makers have to act, or else, the moment is lost, and a great calamity befalls. So it is a matter of greater good, for the lesser evil. Individuals often gets sidelined, sacrificed , and mistakes are made.
Time is a massive linear rolling concept. And it will roll over anyone and anything, we can harp over the past, mistakes made, by others, by us, and miss a great opportunity to CORRECT them.
What matters greatly is action. Action counteracts reaction. Action takes initiative, sieze the moment. Action might result in mistakes, hence taking a linear approach, if actions leads to mistakes, then the next step is not REACTION to the mistakes, but CORRECTIONS to be made. We must always be in the forefront of action, and not let mistakes stop us.
