 In 25th Anniversary, Articles, Careers, Words from the Wise

This is a series of posts that uses a quotation by a famous person from history to make a point about career management. Take a moment to reflect and see whether you can start using this wisdom as you start managing your career.

George Bernard Shaw said:

“Success does not consist of never making mistakes but in never making the same one a second time.” George Bernard Shaw

Proteus Career Management says:

“We have all make mistakes at work. Some cover them up and repeat them time and time again; others are quick to utter the phrase ‘mea culpa’. Which are you?”

The lesson? “Be a person of integrity.”

Dr Mike Warren says:

George Bernard Shaw makes a very valid point. No doubt we have all made mistakes in carrying out the work we do for our employers. As long as we learn from our mistakes and admit to them so that they are not repeated and don’t become a habit we will still be on the road to success.
