I've been making mistakes in data science, software engineering and management for nearly 20 years, and I'm getting pretty good at it!

I've learned how to make new mistakes, safe mistakes, informative mistakes, and generative mistakes - and sometimes even helped others to make mistakes for themselves.

Von Bismarck suggested that only a fool learns from their own mistakes - the wise learn from the mistakes of others. Well, being a really good fool isn't as easy as it sounds, so I started writing down some of my stories and the hardwon lessons taken from them. All the better if that means you get to be wise.

Do please tell me where I've gone wrong, and feel free to share anything that you think will help other people.



P.S. I work as a data advisor, coaching data leaders and helping them develop their teams. Drop me a line if you'd like to discuss further.
