Why bother avoiding it? You’re inevitably going to do it.

Wait, what are we talking about? The wrong thing.

Nobody likes being wrong.  And most people go to great lengths to avoid it.  But what if that is wrong?

While author Kathryn Schulz doesn’t encourage recklessness, impulsive, immoral, or “wrong” behavior, she does point out that the ability to fail, be wrong, be vulnerable, with the option to learn from our mistakes are essential for living a Meaningful Life.  Being wrong is fundamental to the human experience.

If you have the urge to skip a video about being wrong, think twice.  Tune in for a surprisingly philosophic, poignant, and uplifting 18-minute TED talk.

Fallor ergo sum.  I err, therefore I am.
