Getting better faster

September 5, 2021

You’ll get better faster—at whatever you do—if you accept a high error rate.

Want to go on more dates? Ask more people out! Don’t ask only when you’re sure you’ll get a yes. You’ll get rejected more often, but you’ll also go on more dates.

Want to grow your YouTube channel? Experiment with new types of videos! Don’t only post videos that you already know people like. Try new formats. Some will be received poorly, but you’ll also hit on some winners that will pull in new subscribers like never before.

Want to speak a language better? Say as much as you can think of. Be creative! Don’t just say phrases you know you’ll get right. You’ll make more mistakes, but that also means people will correct you more, and you’ll learn faster!
