Time makes it easier to accept our own failures. In fact, given enough time, many people actually boast about their mistakes. “Man, I really blew that one.” “That relationship was a huge mistake.” “What was I thinking when I did … ?”
Why does it take us so long to be okay with our mistakes? What if we could shorten that time from a year to 6 months. From 6 months to one month. From one month to one week. From one week to the same day. What if we could accept ourselves and be okay with our mistakes within 20 minutes of making them? “Man, did you see what I just did? Can you believe I just did that?” What would you do with the other 364 days?
