Confusion between failure and mistake

There is a lot of mysticism around the fact that one should fail in order to innovate. And, many times, we read the same statement with the word “mistake”.

Be careful! A failure is not a mistake. A mistake is a proof that there was negligence, lack of reflection, excessive speed or an assumption of a certain cause-effect during the planning or execution of the process. On the contrary, a failure is a necessary process when producing learning and evolution.

Let’s then be careful with semantics, because it is very important. In any case, if we do not learn after failing, this failure is wasted… it becomes a mistake.
