Week 1 – December 2009
You have heard of ‘Pay it Forward’. Another great comment I heard the other day was ‘Fail Forward’. Whenever you undertake a new project, don’t worry about making some mistakes. Keep working as rapidly as possible in order to learn as much as you can in the shortest period of time. Mistakes are great. Learn from them; research them; use them to propel you forward.
If you get off to a bad start, don’t worry. It’s the finish not the start that counts.
Jockey Eddie Arcaro lost his first 45 races. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team. You will not be remembered for the number of times you failed in the beginning, but for the number of times you succeeded in the end.
Error is only the opportunity to begin again, more intelligently.
Most of my advances were by mistake. You uncover what is when you get rid of what isn’t.
Fail Forward Fast! Make your projects even better.
Wishing you quintessential success
