Wisdom Wednesday #59 – Be Comfortable with Imperfection

In honor of Women’s History Month today’s wisdom comes from a Ted Talk by Reshma Saujani titled “Teach Bravery, Not Perfection”. In her experience with teaching girls to code she has discovered an area of future growth for both girls, women and society at large.

  • She pushes the importance for women to be comfortable with imperfection so they can take risk, after risk, of trial and error and not feel shame if they fall.
  • She urges parents, teachers and mentors to teach girls bravery (and allow girls to be brave) so they feel comfortable with their creative ideas and the risk that is needed to allow those ideas to thrive.
