5 Mindset Blocks That Stop You From Learning From Your Mistakes

Way back in 2014 I wrote about a growing movement among entrepreneurs. In 42 cities across the world founders would meet for “F***Up Nights,” which are just what they sound like — an opportunity for those on the difficult path of starting a business to share their biggest flops and failures. Since that story, these nights have spread to 185 cities.

Sharing your most embarrassing stumbles doesn’t immediately sound like buckets of fun, so what’s behind the unlikely popularity of these events? Community is certainly part of it. Failure feels worse when you think you’re uniquely prone to it. But so is learning. There are few better ways to learn than trying, falling on your face, and vowing to never do that particular thing again.

The unexpected popularity of F***Up Nights demonstrates the immense potential to learn from failure. But science shows that most of us miss out on a big part of the benefit of our inevitable screw-ups. Research from Lauren Eskreis-Winkler and Ayelet Fishbach of University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business has shown that, even when the incentives are high, people have a tendency to put their heads in the sand and not learn from their mistakes.

Thankfully, the pair’s work also highlights ways to avoid letting your ego and emotions get in the way of learning from failure. UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center recently dug deep into these findings, which show both what blocks people from making the most of their missteps and how to overcome these common mental blocks.

1. You make it all about you.

Ego is the enemy of learning. Admitting you’re wrong hurts your sense of yourself as competent and smart, but it helps you correct false beliefs, seek out novel information, and expand your horizons. So how do you ensure you don’t let your ego get in the way of self-improvement? One technique is to try and put some mental distance between yourself and the error you’re trying to learn from.

“This involves thinking of your personal experience from the outside perspective of a neutral third party, asking, ‘Why did Jeremy fail?’ instead of ‘Why did I fail?’ While that might sound cheesy, it seems to work,” explains Greater Good. You can read more about the science behind this strange but effective technique here and here.

2. You keep them to yourself.

“People tend to hide their own failures, out of a sense of shame,” observes Greater Good. But one of the best ways to learn from your mistakes is to turn them into inspirational stories for the benefit of others.

Just like inspirational speakers spin past mistakes into motivational gold, framing your errors this way turns miscalculations into useful life lessons, research shows. “High school students who shared failures with middle school students went on to get better grades than those who didn’t reframe their failures; middle schoolers who gave advice to elementary school students later spent more time on homework,” reports Greater Good.

You don’t have to be a formerly struggling student to put this insight to use. Events like F****Up Nights formalize the process, but even just informally sharing your hard-earned lessons with entrepreneur friends (or online) will help you tease out and solidify the lessons learned from some of your most challenging experiences.

3. You repress your feelings.

Does failing feeling good?  No, it feels awful. That’s not fun, but it is necessary. Pain is nature’s way of encouraging us to learn not to do something. So when you repress the pain, you also repress the learning. Letting yourself really feel your failures is essential if you want them to make you wiser in the long run. So no running away from your feelings or dulling them with substances or distractions.

“Sadness seems to improve memory and judgment, which can help us to succeed in the future; regret can actually sharpen motivation,” Greater Good points out.

4. You forget your why.

When you make a mistake, it’s easy to get caught up in a loop of beating yourself up and second-guessing each step you took. Reflection and unhappiness is part of the process of coping with failure (see above), but an obsessive focus on the details of your screw-up doesn’t actually help you pick yourself up and apply whatever you’ve learned from the experience.

What does? Focusing on why you put yourself in a position to fail in the first place. “Holding a clear long-term goal in mind — such as becoming a doctor or learning to sail — can help us to tolerate short-term failure and override information-avoidance,” explains Greater Good. As Simon Sinek might remind us, understanding your why is a great way to increase your resilience in the face of life’s many inescapable setbacks.

5. You beat yourself up.

Again, failure isn’t supposed to feel great. But as explained above, beating yourself up about your missteps is demotivating and distracts you from extracting valuable lessons from failure. Sure you should reflect on what went wrong, but you shouldn’t waste energy ruminating endlessly on your shortcomings.

Instead, research suggests you should try some self-compassion. “Many recent studies suggest that you’re more likely to grow if you speak kindly to yourself, as a loved one might speak to you, in the wake of failure,” claims Greater Good.

Also, rather than viewing failure as a testament to your personal weaknesses, remind yourself that error is a human universal. “It’s not a question of if you’ll fail — it’s when. The only real question you need to answer is what you can learn from the experience,” the article sagely notes.

A F****Up Night is designed to transform failure from an isolating and shameful instance of personal weakness into a community-building learning opportunity. But you don’t need a group of like-minded (and equally fallible) founders to view failure this way. You just need the research-backed mindset adjustments and simple techniques mentioned above. After all, failure is a terrible thing to waste.

Failure can trigger a torrent of painful emotions—hurt, anger, shame, even depression. As a result, most of us try to avoid mistakes; when they do happen, we try to sweep them under the rug. This natural tendency is heightened in companies whose leaders have, often unconsciously, institutionalized a fear of failure. They structure projects so that no time or money is available for experimentation, and they award bonuses and promotions to those who deliver according to plan.

But organizations don’t develop new capabilities—or take appropriate risks—unless managers tolerate failure and insist that it be openly discussed. The psychologist Carol Dweck identified two basic mindsets with which people approach their lives: “fixed” and “growth.” People who have a fixed mindset believe that intelligence and talents are largely a matter of genetics; you either have them or you don’t. They aim to appear smart at all costs and see failure as something to be avoided, fearing it will make them seem incompetent.

A fixed mindset limits the ability to learn because it makes individuals focus too much on performing well. By contrast, people who have a growth mindset seek challenges and learning opportunities. They believe that no matter how good you are, you can always get better through effort and practice. They don’t see failure as a sign of inadequacy and are happy to take risks. When making hiring and promotion decisions, leaders often put too much emphasis on performance and not enough on the potential to learn.

Over time, Egon Zehnder, a global executive search firm, had developed a sophisticated means of evaluating candidates that considered not only their past achievements but also their competencies. However, it found that in numerous instances, candidates who looked equally good on paper performed differently on the job. Why? A partner at the firm, Karena Strella, and her team believed the answer was individuals’ potential for improvement.

After a two-year project that drew on academic research and interviews, they identified four elements that make up potential: curiosity, insight, engagement, and determination. They developed interview questions to get at these elements, along with psychometric measures applied via questionnaires. This new model now plays a key role in the search firm’s assessments of job candidates. Egon Zehnder has found that high-potential candidates perform better than their peers with less potential, thanks to their openness to acquiring new skills and their thirst for learning.

It is common for people to ascribe their successes to hard work, brilliance, and skill rather than luck; however, they blame their failures on bad fortune. This phenomenon, known as the attribution bias, hinders learning (see “Why Leaders Don’t Learn from Success,” HBR, April 2011). In fact, unless people recognize that failure resulted from their own actions, they do not learn from their mistakes. In a study we conducted with Chris Myers, we asked participants to work on two different decision-making tasks spaced one week apart.

Each task had a correct solution, but only a few people were able to identify it. We found that participants who took responsibility for doing poorly on the first activity were almost three times as likely to succeed on the second one. They learned from their failure and made better decisions as a result. Leaders can use the following methods to encourage others to find the silver lining in failures, adopt a growth mindset, focus on potential, and overcome the attribution bias.

NASA’s Headed Back To The Moon And Here Are Innovators That Will Help It Get There

NASA begins a $90 billion-plus program this week to send Americans to the Moon with the launch of Artemis 1, a crewless expedition with the aim of eventually establishing a permanent human presence on the lunar surface. The launch could be as early as Monday, depending on the weather and equipment readiness.Each of the first four Artemis launches, spread over the next few years, is expected to include no personnel and cost more than $4 billion. NASA says it’s returning to the Moon for three main reasons: discovery, inspiration for the next generation and economic opportunity.

If the Artemis program is anything like its predecessor Apollo, which the space agency discontinued in the early 1970s after putting 12 astronauts on the Moon, it will yield useful products used by Americans every day. Apollo spawned the technology underpinning GPS, telecommunications satellites, DustBusters, Lasik eye surgery, shock absorbers for buildings, wireless headsets, CAT scans and air purifiers.

Fittingly, Artemis gets its name from the Greek Moon goddess who’s the twin of Apollo. The mission will test-drive the possibility of human life not only on the Moon but on Mars, putting humanity one step closer to being a multiple-planet species, according to Marshall Smith, a former high-ranking NASA official.

“There’s a whole plethora of reasons why it makes sense to continue this journey into space,” Smith told Forbes. “We spend this money building science and technology, developing our workforce to be able to do complicated systems and build complicated systems.”

NASA can’t do it alone. The agency is working with dozens of private companies and nonprofit institutions to make returning to the Moon a reality. Here’s a sample of how a few entrepreneurs, recent startups and other innovators are pitching in.

Moon Buggies

During the last three Apollo missions, the astronauts didn’t just walk on the Moon, they drove. That’s NASA’s plan for Artemis as well, and several companies are hard at work trying to build an astronaut’s dream car. These hopefuls are competing or working alongside behemoth defense contractors like Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin. Although the rovers won’t be used until 2025 at the earliest, it takes years to get it right.

One contributor is Louisville, Colorado-based Sierra Space, which revealed plans to build an Artemis rover in April. In partnership with carmaker Nissan and aerospace engineering firm Teledyne Brown, Sierra Space hopes to contribute communications and flight software. The company, which is also developing spacecraft to deliver cargo to the International Space Station, was already working on rovers before entering into the partnership.

Sierra Space was founded in 2021 by billionaires Eren and Fatih Ozmen as a subsidiary of Sierra Nevada Corp. It was valued at $4.5 billion after its most recent funding round in May took in $24.3 million. The company says it’s created over 4,000 space systems and components for around 500 missions.

Another company working on a new Moon buggy is California-based startup Astrolab, founded in 2020, which is in the process of building the “Flexible Logistics and Exploration” rover, or FLEX, which is designed to transport both cargo and people and has a capacity of about 3,300 pounds — comparable to a Ford F250 pickup truck. What sets FLEX apart from other rovers is its modular payload capability. It’s able to attach different cargoes and implements, whereas older Mars rovers such as Curiosity and Perseverance had a fixed payload.

“I think what makes our team unique is we have a really novel and innovative design with FLEX,” Jaret Matthews, founder and CEO of Astrolab, told Forbes. “This modular payload capability gives the rover tremendous versatility, and we think that’s necessary to accomplish things both when the astronauts are there, but also when they’re not there.”

Moon Dirt

When they return to the Moon, astronauts won’t just be hanging out in their new rides or smacking around golf balls. They’ll have science to do. The retrieval of regolith, a fancy word for moon rocks, is a vital part of the Artemis mission. That’s because NASA’s goal of establishing a livable society on the Moon depends on working with what’s available on the lunar surface to create things like agriculture. There’s also consideration paid to what might also work on Mars, asteroids or other celestial bodies.

The phrase “cheap as dirt” doesn’t apply to the Moon. In 2002, after three NASA interns stole Moon rocks from the Johnson Space Center lab in Houston, a value was assigned to the 48.5 pounds of regolith the Apollo astronauts brought back: around $1.1 billion. The interns were caught.

NASA has entrusted three companies to help them gather dust: Masten Space Systems, ispace and Lunar Outpost. The NASA payout they’ll be sharing is a laughably small $25,001. Why such a tiny amount? NASA used what it refers to as a “low-priced, technically acceptable” method of selection, and these companies still placed bids.

The Japanese and European divisions of Tokyo-based startup Ispace each have $5,000 contracts with NASA for help in the dirt-retrieval process. They plan to collect lunar soil samples and essentially sell them to NASA. This will be a historic moment as it will mark the first commercial transaction of lunar material to occur in space. Ispace’s Japanese team will have its micro rover and lander on board a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, from which it will head to the northeastern side of the Moon to collect samples no later than November. Ispace Europe’s project will head to space in 2023, focusing on rocks at the lunar South Pole.

The company, valued at $193 million, according to Pitchbook, is focused on building a variety of lunar projects. It began life as a Google Lunar XPRIZE project. In 2010, the company’s founder and CEO Takeshi Hakamada took that team, which was the only Japanese finalist out of the five competing for the XPRIZE project, and founded Ispace. The company’s U.S. division has another contract with NASA worth $73 million to carry its Commercial Lunar Payload Services to the Moon for later Artemis missions.

“We are pleased to receive these two awards from NASA for what will be a historic moment for humankind,” Hakamada via a statement. “For the space industry, as well as the potential for all industries on Earth, this marks the beginning of a cislunar economy where economic value can be created on the Moon, apart from Earth — but for the benefit of Earth’s economy.”

Slated to join Ispace Europe in 2023 at the lunar South Pole is Masten Space Systems. The Mojave, California-based company, founded in 2004, has the biggest contract out of the four rock extractors at $15,000. It also has an $81 million NASA contract to build a robotic lunar lander. Masten plans to retrieve lunar samples with a method called the Rocket Mining System that uses a rocket engine pressurized to dig into the surface.

Masten’s current financial situation may mean this never comes to pass. This month, after a summer of employee furloughs and layoffs, the company filed for bankruptcy as it struggled to keep up with the demands of its NASA contract. NASA said in a statement that if Masten is “unable to complete its task order,” the agency has made contingency plans.

Satellites The Size Of Cereal Boxes

For years, CubeSats — small research satellites — have been used to further space exploration by giving scientists, astronauts and researchers a look into what’s going on out there in the unknown. These satellites provide NASA with relatively inexpensive access to space, and Southwest Research Institute wants in on the action.

Southwest Research is the lead company working on the CubeSat for Solar Particles. CuSP is a cereal-box-sized weather-station nanosatellite that will be one of ten CubeSats hitching a ride on Artemis 1. Although the Artemis mission is focused on the Moon, this tiny satellite will be concentrated on the Sun, studying solar winds headed toward the Earth, as well as solar radiation and events. It will carry three instruments that help measure space weather. In 2014, Southwest Research signed a contract with NASA worth roughly $8.7 million for its participation in CuSP, according to Mihir Desai, director of the Department of Space Research, Space Science and Engineering at the institute.

Southwest Research, headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, has been around for almost eight decades. The independent nonprofit was the recipient of almost $726 million in research funding in 2021 and the company has worked with NASA since 1970. Its first space mission, in 2000, marked NASA’s inaugural use of Earth’s magnetosphere imaging, which maps the part of space controlled by Earth’s magnetic field.

The institute’s goal for its satellites is to build a system that can predict bad solar weather, which has the potential to harm communications and electrical systems on Earth. According to Lloyd’s of London, a huge solar storm would cause hundreds of billions or possibly trillions of dollars in damage.

“What we want to be able to do in the long run is to be able to create a network of space weather monitors and a constellation,” Desai said. “In order to do accurate predictions of solar events that could potentially cause damage to the Earth system … we need a network that’s strategically distributed in interplanetary space.

Microcoaching: The Next Generation Of Personal Development

As the modern workplace evolves, its associated practices must too. An office used to mean a fixed location, now it’s anywhere with an internet connection or something to write with. A multi-million dollar business used to require heaps of staff and complicated infrastructure, now it could be a teenager with a Shopify site. Meetings used to always be face-to-face. Emails used to be faxes. Instant payments used to be cheques. You get the idea.

Ambitious entrepreneurs are maximising their time; fitting in more of what matters and doing less of what doesn’t. More is automated, delegated and eliminated than ever before. It makes sense that coaching is up for discussion.

What is microcoaching?

Microcoaching is an alternative to traditional coaching, consisting of smaller and more frequent questions, guidance and assistance. Rather than scheduling hour-long calls or face-to-face meetings, microcoaching might involve a five-minute chat every few days, and the exchange of voice notes or text-based questions and prompts between coach and client. The principle is that frequent doses of guidance might help keep someone on track better than an in-depth discussion every two weeks, for example.

Microcoaching is used by coaches looking to adapt their practices to a changing workplace, as well as the evolving demands of a modern entrepreneur. It’s used within larger organizations, to enable senior team members to offer support to junior ones, or to enable peer-to-peer development. It might be used within entrepreneur networks or between friendship groups. Whenever you’re spending time with someone who is helping you find solutions or holding you accountable, you might be on the receiving end of microcoaching.

Formal, structured coaching has its place, but for some clients of coaches it’s surplus to requirements and shorter, more frequent bursts of motivation, inspiration and nudging may prove more beneficial.

What makes microcoaching so effective?

Microcoaching, by its very nature, enables more frequent catch ups and a real-time method of keeping in touch. This means challenges can be assessed and dissected and a plan of action made without waiting for the next scheduled session, which may be weeks or even months in the future. This is particularly useful if the microcoaching recipient feels they may have made a mistake, could have handled a situation better, or they have a big decision they’d like to discuss.

The faster implementation of microcoaching can make the recipient more effective in their work. Whether self-employed or an employee, they are less likely to waste time pursuing practices that are ineffective or go too far down a rabbit hole before they’re caught. Feedback loops are far shorter meaning actions can be redirected accordingly. Furthermore, the microcoaching receiver can access frequent doses of motivation, keeping their levels topped up rather than allowing for boom and bust.

One of the key benefits of microcoaching is its flexible nature, especially when communication is delivered asynchronously. This means the coach and their client can exchange thoughts and questions in their own time, whenever is convenient. This removes the need to find time in two busy schedules and block out an afternoon for a call and review period. Long coaching calls can be draining for both parties and they’re not always effective. Furthermore, long coaching calls might require an initial phase of catching up, which microcoaching negates the need for.

How can entrepreneurs benefit from microcoaching?

Ambitious entrepreneurs are hungry for knowledge, including feedback and pointers of how they can improve. They can open themselves up for microcoaching by letting key individuals around them know that regular feedback is welcome.

Within a formal coaching relationship, where an entrepreneur has commissioned a coach, they might adapt the schedule so they communicate in smaller bursts and incorporate ad hoc phone calls, shorter catch ups or voice notes, saving the longer sessions for when deep dives are necessary or when there’s something significant to discuss. This adaptation may be welcomed by their coach and make the arrangement more effective.

Outside of a formal coaching relationship, for example in mastermind groups or between friendship groups consisting of entrepreneurs, each member can administer and receive microcoaching according to the boundaries of those involved. If a friend is explaining a business problem, for example, I might ask them if I can offer feedback, ask some questions, or suggest a new way to frame the problem. In turn, they may hear of a business challenge I’m facing and ask if it’s okay that they probe, in order to help me reach a solution.

When microcoaching is met with an open demeanour and willingness to learn, it can be effective. When it’s unsolicited, defensiveness may ensue, and no solutions reached, hence why it’s crucial to check before offering input.

Entrepreneurs who question every aspect of their career and work will inevitably find better ways of conducting business. Modern businesses have reimagined what’s possible; applying the same to personal development could unlock the progress ambitious business owners are seeking.

Critics by C. Lee Smith

I define microcoaching as short, frequent bursts of sales coaching, personalized to the individual’s specific needs, that fill the developmental and motivational gaps from existing 1‑on‑1 coaching sessions. The bite-sized guidance is ideal for reps who are overwhelmed or easily distracted. The ability to automate sales microcoaching through AI is ideal for sales managers who are too busy for more 1‑on‑1 coaching and believe their reps need frequent reinforcement on key sales principles and practices.

The differences between microcoaching and traditional sales coaching comes down to how and when it happens and to what’s covered in the sessions. A traditional sales coaching session can take place in a one-on-one meeting. It can also happen during a ride-along. As you and your rep approach an account’s office for an in-person meeting, coaching will include a strategic discussion. These sessions usually take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour.

They are often focused on deal coaching, or reviewing the rep’s pipeline, at the expense of skills building and motivation, according to research from the Sales Management Association. Microcoaching, on the other hand, involves the delivery of one key piece of information. These sessions last between two and six minutes. This is the sweet spot of attention for the typical learner, but for easily-distracted salespeople, they should be closer to the two-minute mark. When a rep receives a microcoaching feed in an email or chat message, they can quickly review a basic principle such as the need to research the prospect before reaching out.

After reading the statement, reviewing a blog post or short video, they can build their knowledgebase by reflecting on and responding to two questions that come with the feed. And automated sales microcoaching works well when it relies on AI driven by the results of the rep’s sales assessment. In these cases, a feed will summarize a detail about the rep’s work habits or process as it relates to sales or interacting with others. The rep then reflects on and gives brief answers about how they can adapt their practices to improve sales outcomes.

Microcoaching is best suited for tactics, but can be very effective for developing skills and their mindset. These topics are often neglected in standard one-on-one meetings. Through four years of testing and development at SalesFuel, we created the first sales microcoaching platform, SalesFuel CoachFeed. It contains four essential elements for upskilling your sales reps. 

Needs analysis – Every successful sales professional knows that their sales outcome will only be as good as the needs analysis they conduct on their prospect. Microcoaching emphasizes how to conduct effective needs analysis.

Sales coaching – Microcoaching doesn’t exist in a vacuum. The material should supplement the topics managers and reps cover in their regular one-on-one sessions.

Adaptive coaching – Every sales rep is at a different point in their professional development. They come to their positions with unique strengths and weaknesses. Microcoaching platforms can target each rep’s unique needs by tapping assessment results. They then merge the results with knowledgebase information into effective suggestions and thought-provoking questions.

Microcoaching – Regular topical feeds address a rep’s sales skills needs and their mindset based on assessment results. Additional feeds address account-based coaching. First, reps identify the accounts they want to land or grow. Then, they receive feeds containing intelligence about those accounts and advice on how to proceed.

You know how to coach your reps. And if you had more time, you could turn some of your average sellers into superstars. When you turn to microcoaching, you don’t need to find more hours in the day. Both you and your reps will benefit from using microcoaching to supplement the coaching you’re already providing.

All The Yoga Accessories You Need To Improve Your Practice

Our homes have become not only a place to lay our heads but also our offices, classrooms and gyms. So it’s no wonder Canadians may be searching for balance and a little serenity in their lives.

Yoga delivers a dose of calm and can help to relieve stress and anxiety. But it’s not just medicine for the soul; it can also offer a challenging workout or a gentle stretch, depending on the discipline you choose and the poses you practice.

Check out our selection of yoga accessories, available in Canada, to take your regular sessions to the next level. Remember: Yoga is about progression, not perfection, so keep practicing!

Yoga mats

One of the most important and affordable yoga accessories is the mat. It will keep you comfortable, helping you to relax into stretches and breathe deeply. At the end of your session, when you enter the meditation section, a good mat will help you forget where you are and drift away.
