Mistakes

"The physicist Niels Bohr once defined an expert as 'a person who has made all of the mistakes that can be made in that field'. From the perspective of the brain, Bohr was absolutely right. Expertise is simply the wisdom that emerges from cellular error. Mistakes aren't things to be discouraged. On the contrary, they should be cultivated and carefully investigated."
Lehrer, J, How we decide, Houghton Miffen, NY: 2009 p51
