As many times as it takes

Mastery often means doing something as many times as it takes to get it right.

Whenever possible I give people the opportunity to revise their work as many times as they want. Only the final outcome or product matters. It was the learning and the hard work that I want to reward, not getting it right the first time. One of the most important lessons is that the only thing you can control is how you react. When challenges arise what do you do? When you don’t have an answer? When your skills aren’t up to the task?

When you allow people to make their own decisions, they start to feel more engaged, confident and empowered. And once that happens, there’s no limit to what they can achieve.
