What we see depends mainly on what we look for.

Next time

This time, you didn’t get it perfect. And that’s just fine, because next time you can remember.

Next time, you can remember what went right and what went wrong. And you can be prepared to more effectively deal with both.

Next time, you can recall the successes you had and the mistakes you made. You’ll have the opportunity to avoid those mistakes and expand on the successes.

Next time, you’ll have the valuable benefit of experience. Next time you’ll have greater familiarity, more confidence, much less doubt and hesitation.

Next time you’ll do better, and the time after that, even better. Experience quickly adds up, and quickly adds value, power, effectiveness.

If at first you don’t succeed, if at first you don’t get it quite right, proceed to next time. Next time, you’ll have the opportunity to improve, and you will.
