“The real measure of success is the number of experiments that can be crowded into 24 hours.” Thomas Edison
There is benefit in celebrating failure. In fact, instead of talking about my failures, I want to get in the habit of calling all of my botched projects experiments. I know that working on big, audacious projects makes people uncomfortable. That’s okay. I try to run at the hardest parts of the problem first and make that my path of least resistance. I learn as much as I can and then try again.
I work to reframe all of my failures as learning experiences.
