We are raised in a culture, an academic and professional culture, where making a mistake is penalized. Mistakes, in our culture of perfection, of correctness, are considered a weakness of logic, of sensibility, of intelligence. Unfortunately, this logic is preventing us from pushing the boundaries of the status quo. Impressing the boss, fitting in, towing the company line. Giving the answers that we think our superiors want to hear... is killing our ability to improve and do good business.
