I started a project late, I had three weeks to work on it, and I ended up submitting it the day after the deadline. I lost a golden opportunity, and I really want to make sure I learn from this experience. Is there research showing how one should view a personal mistake to most effectively learn from it?

Should I:

  1. Think of the experience as terrible and completely my fault, for maximal pain for operant conditioning
  2. Think of the experience as not a big deal
  3. Think of the experience as only forgivable if I learn from it
  4. None of the above?
