On the Carpet:

Big Mistakes


Most of us, most of the time, not only fail to see the lessons from a mistake, but actually strive to avoid them, ignore them, all to avoid admitting the mistake: to instead rationalize about excuses, find a scapegoat. Instead of learning, instead of making ourselves better for all time, we choose to feel better in the moment, permanently lessening ourselves by the amount of improvement such a decision costs.

About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1750 Articles)
Along with other stuff I enjoy that pays the bills (a plus!), I'm a budding nurse comic. I plan, like fake Opthomologist Rand Paul, to create my own professional organization solely so it will grant me a Doctorate. In my case, the org will be something like the AANC (American Association of Nurse Comics), and it will (trust me on this point) agree to make me the first ever DNC: Doctor of Nurse Comedy. I'll keep you posted!
