How to be proud when you screw up

When you are working on a new piece and a section isn't working, it can be tempting to get frustrated.

However, it is the perfect time to feel a sense of pride. Why pride when you just screwed up?

Because it's a reminder that you know what all the options are to fix that spot!  All you have to do is go through each one of those options to figure out the one that will make that section work.

With every option you try that doesn't help, you can get prouder and prouder of yourself for having more and more tricks in your tool bag to try.

Practicing is so much more fun when you turn every mistake into a way to be proud of yourself!
