First, we should realise what mistakes we committed- we rejected suggestions of others, we made wrong planning, we took wrong steps to execute our planning etc. I think a comprehensive analysis of failure should be done; and should confess our mistakes we committed - knowingly or unknowingly. Then we should repent but it should not be so deep that it overpowers us. Confession is also repentance and repentance demands expiation.
And expiation is very clear that we should try again with new and fresh spirit.

Even this challenging situation would ease
If those repent of a mistake and repeating the same mistake or other similar mistakes and repenting to show off to others each time, it becomes only a wastage of time, as the author pointed.
One realizes the mistake that has been made and repents with all one's heart. It is a good sign to all. Repentance other than that should be seen only as 'pull the wool over eyes. So it is not wrong to view such hypocrisy as a waste of time. Then a change in the headline is necessary. It can be rewritten as - " If not realize the mistake and repenting without sincerity, It is a waste of time".

Instead, one should draw proper lessons from such things and correct or act properly in future.
We will be doing new experiments in the laboratory when we are attempting new reactions. We expect the reaction to happen in one way but sometimes it happens differently. The whole research lies there only. Why the reaction went differently. Which factor contributed to that. How to change the path of the reaction is the research. The secret of success in our life depends definitely on our understanding of the mistakes and not repeating them.
Believe in the existence of God the super power.
