I really don’t know what to single out as a big mistake or failure. I think for me, personally, its always about trying to understand other people’s views. You know when something sounds strange the customers really get deeper into the feedback and have lots of competing views about how the world evolves. Understanding that your view is just one opinion among many and is as such not important is a very vital lesson.
