    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    5 Mistakes Everyone Should Make
    1. Totally embarrass yourself.
    2. Ruffle people’s feathers.
    3. Follow trends blindly
    4. Be willing to fail—doing something you love
    5. Carelessly put yourself at risk

    Do you agree with these?
    Yeah, I see the point they're trying to make with each of the mistakes.

    1. relates to 3., as exact opposites. Public shame versus avoiding the likelihood of public shame.

    Thus, knowing the extremes of either ends will make one more aware of their middle-ground.

    2. yes, because I am of the opinion that disagreements are healthy and needed for progress. To learn how to have disagreements without ruffling of feathers will inevitably have as its first step, disagreements always ruffling feathers.

    If I was given a choice, whether to be surrounded by fans or critics, I'd choose critics in a heartbeat.

    4. It's humbling.

    5. Test your limits and have a greater appreciation for the fine line between STUPID and DUMB.

    Can you think of other mistakes that might be valuable to make at times?
    - Go against your instinct/gut.
    - Repeat something that was a mistake in the past [in the new context/setting, it can help loads in clearing up misconceptions rising from generalisations, and a deeper/better understanding of the elements that led to one instance being a mistake and the other instance, perhaps, being a success].
    - Settle

    #1) I should probably try this one more often. It would make life more interesting. I tend to be chicken about this sort of thing.

    #2) I think if you disagree, its better to admit it than to silently fake agreement. It's important to be considerate of the other person's point of view though.

    #3) Can't see myself doing this. I do try to analyze the common trends of today, to figure out why they are popular and appeal to people but I'm not going to follow something that isn't going to suit me.

    #4) Yes! Very important.

    #5) I do believe in taking calculated risks but not careless ones. Some degree of risk adds spice to life but being reckless is just plain stupid.
