I used a modified version of this for an assembly presentation at Bangkok Patana School. The message is simple, and well known, yet is still an important one to raise with students. It should be quite easy for someone else to recycle this and explain the gist of the slides. The early slides (and video) are deliberately designed to make people laugh – mistakes are often funny after all – but the presentation takes a more serious turn on slide 8 when the audience are reminded that often your own mistakes do not feel very funny at all. The remainder of the presentation provides timeworn suggestions of how best to manage your mistakes and make the most of them, recognising that mistakes are vital to human progress.
