"...I’ve never liked this embrace of failure. We learn as much from our successes as from our failure and I suspect we learn much more. Besides, I failed a lot in school. I didn’t test all that well and didn’t get straight As. Failure made me feel awful... It has serious consequences. Get labelled a “Failure” and it can ruin your life.... be aware of the fallacy of failure. It is celebrated only when you succeed. If you continue to fail, you’re going to be— A Failure. So the fetishism of failure really means you can fail a couple of time—two or three or maybe three times— but no more. How many entrepreneurs are celebrated for their sixth or seventh try?"I love the idea that "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." However, in business life, I cringe whenever coworkers extoll "virtues" like "Fail fast. Fail often." Um... doesn't that just mean you wasted a lot of precious time cleaning up messes? What's wrong with thinking through a problem, planning for possible roadblocks, and succeeding?!?

"Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead."
