Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.
~ Robert F. Kennedy
Most of us are frightened of failure and ashamed to admit it, but it seems that failure is such an important component in success, that if we are not prepared to face the prospect of it, we simply will not learn to succeed.
It’s an interesting thought, isn’t it?
In this Wonderful video Tim Harford explains why success always starts with failure – here’s a short transcript:
- Be willing to fail A LOT
- Fail on a survivable scale
- Own it and Adapt
- Learn to spot a failure and fix it early
As someone who’s failed, and adapted a lot, I really enjoyed Hartford’s ideas and observations. What about you?
