Scent of a Woman

"No mistakes in the Tango, not like life. Simple - that's what make tango so great - you make a mistake and you get all tangled up - just tango on" Blind, retired U.S. Army officer Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade (Al Pacino)

"In schools (society) we stigmatize mistakes" (Sir Ken Robinson on TED).

Make life a Tango, allow for mistakes, learn from them - and you are far better of. In aviation we seek mistakes in the flight simulators, learn, and hopefully avoid them in real life. There is not yet a life simulator so unfortunately you have to "wing it"!

Given that most new discoveries and frontier breaks comes out of often simple mistakes, aren't we lucky...
