My Accounting Superpower: Reconciliations – getting the numbers to balance

What is the Principle at Stride You Connect with the Most: It is OK to make mistakes and unacceptable not to learn from them – no one wants to make mistakes, but if you do, it creates a great learning tool. You will remember what was done wrong and learn the correct way and won’t forget it. I remember being in a spelling bee competition and I was given the word “Oriole” to spell out and I was wrong. But from that day on, I never forgot how to spell that word.
