This post is a part of weekly serial here on Entrepreneurship in a Box that will present a quote of the week. This can be something useful for entrepreneurs to improve themselves and their businesses.
Are you as an entrepreneur self-critical enough?
Do you think that you are unmistakable?
Is it everything OK in your business?
If you think that you are unmistakable, or that everything is OK in your business, there must be something wrong. Probably, you are not self-critical enough. Probably, you don’t want to use the potential to learn from your own mistakes. Probably, you don’t use mistakes to improve your business.
Your self-criticism is important for you because in such a way you become aware of your mistakes. We are all failing because in such a way we can learn how to stand again on our own feet.
Because of that, the quote of the week is:
The cleverest of all, in my opinion, is the man who calls himself a fool at least once a month. ~ Fyodor Dostoevsky
If you don’t call yourself a fool at least once a month probably you as an entrepreneur cannot utilize the opportunities to improve your business through your own mistakes. However, it also can mean that your business is perfect.
