|Abstract:||Hate being wrong? You are not alone - it's a dreadful feeling.|
One would have to be a little crazy to keep a daily record of the thoughts you firmly believed in yesterday and that turned out wrong today. Wouldn't one? Yet, if you rarely or never *consciously* make mistakes, how do you think you can possibly improve?
