You have to select your monumental mistakes carefully. You don't want to waste them. You want your poor judgement to lead to an amazing, enormous and long-lasting catastrophe that brings with it bright colors and vivid emotions. You want it to involve a fire truck. It's all too easy to really fuck up and only come away from it with a forty year engagement inside a small, windowless gray box.
If at all possible you should try to time your colossal mistakes during visits to the zoo.
