My greatest mistake

I was asked that question recently as part of an interview: “what is your greatest mistake”?

In the past I could have told you a hundred mistakes I had made. Everything I did I judged, nothing was ever “perfect”. It was all part of my library of how I was not enough.

But on this day, I had no answer. All those actions, words, stumbles, tears, laughs and paths of my past brought me here.

What to say in response then?

My journey is no mistake.

The truth is, I am here to be me and there is no mistake in that truth. Any mistake someone finds in me is simply a perception in time and I hope we can all learn to see those moments as opportunities to learn from each other.

My hope for our future

The question I hope we start asking: What is your greatest purpose?

May we not force each other to look at our pasts with the lens of judgement. May we instead ask each other how we are showing up today.

In the interviews today I want to know, why do you want to be here, with us, on this team?

Tell me who you are and your vision, let’s dream of what we can become when we work together.
