- [Instructor] Albert Einstein once said…anyone who has never made a mistake…has never tried anything new.…I make mistakes all the time…when making instructional videos.…Sometimes I mess up enough that I just need to start…the whole recording over again, but most of the time…they're little mistakes that I can fix;…maybe I say the wrong word, or forget what I wanted to say…and have dead air, these things are all easy to fix…with a little editing.…Any time I get tongue tied or misspeak,…I don't even stop the recording.…
