PIONEER Life Is An Experiment
PIONEER Life Is An Experiment. Foster innovation and creativity through creating a learning environment where mistakes and failures are considered experiments and opportunities to grow and evolve.
Pioneer, is a person who is among the first to explore, settle a new country or area, or discover something new.
When you watch a child learning to crawl, taste something new, pull something over, or fall over when trying to stand up, they are experimenting. They quickly learn if something is not working, it is part of their social and emotional development.
It is no different for adults as our brain has neuroplasticity, which allows it to continue to grow and evolve when it is stimulated with new experiences. So why do we stop playing, innovating and creating? Is it because we are too afraid of what people will think if we make a mistake, be wrong or fail?
When we experiment we learn and it leads to better knowledge. Every person has to conduct their own experiments, so step out of your comfort zone and experiment a little.
“Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better. What if they are a little coarse, and you may get your coat soiled or torn? What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice. Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.” RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Thomas Edison is thought to have experimented over 10,000 times before he invented the light bulb. The more experiments he made, the close he came to a solution.
Many of us spend our days as if we are going to live forever. We dream about things we never do. We think about things we never say. We sit and hope and expect things to fall into our lap but guess what? They never do.
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.” OSCAR WILDE
