It's the nature of things. That's why we have so many error correcting tools and so many practices to double check our work.

I make mistakes all the time. I try to avoid them by doing work in very small iterations. Either TDD or just developing very little and writing a console.log statement to see if things are as expected so far. Then create a temporary git commit in case I mess up in the next 3 minutes. Repeat.

That way, I keep debugging to a minimum, compared to coding for 30 minutes and then having to debug all of my work.
