An error isn’t a mistake until you refuse to correct it

In the worms-in-the-Big-Apple movie “City Hall,” which I saw last night, the following quote
“An error isn’t a mistake until you refuse to correct it” is ascribed to JFK, whereas the Tinterwebs prefers Orlando A. Battista.

And on the subject of mistakes, David Gurteen is pointing people towards a video called an RSA video “Being Wrong”

The most recent talk I watched was from Kathryn Schulz on Being Wrong where she presents a tribute to human creativity and the way we generate and revise our beliefs about ourselves and the world.

Hat-tip to Johnnie Moore for tweeting my “The Primed Directive” post, which David Gurteen (among others) re-tweeted.
