I love this quote
“Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
We actually have to fail in order to succeed.
Not everything we do will work out in our favor. We have to keep 1) collecting information 2) running experiments (read: do stuff).
I’ve said before that I am no longer impresseed with people that ONLY know a lot.
I am impressed by people that take new information and turn it into action. That is impressive.
They are willing to test it, and possibly be wrong……and fail miserably at times.
Not the most fun, but it is effective.
Try. Fail. Seek. Repeat.
The goal over time is to get more actionable information pointed towards better.
The goal is to not ever fail. The goal is only BETTER.
Fail forward as fast as possible towards better.
Let me know!
The blog has been more slient lately as I have been tied up on tons of projects. The big news is that I will have a new site up that I believe you will LOVE on April 1. Stay Tuned!
