once heard a story about a woman working in the film industry who noticed something very significant. She was one of the people who “click” the slate that says “Take One, Take Two,” and so on. Whenever the scene needed to be redone, they called it a “mis-take.” She incorporated this into her life and when something she tried didn’t work, she just called it a “mis-take.” And did another take.
From this passage, I get the impression that she's not telling the origin of the word, but giving a new way of looking at the word in a more positive way. "Hey, you didn't just make a major screw up that'll ruin your life. It's just a mis-take. Let's do take-two and move on!"
