“Failing” is that word that has always held negative connotations, but we’re seeing a change in peoples perception of failure. We’re constantly being reminded that we are living in a time of “unprecedented change”. And it’s true. In order to keep relevant, businesses and individuals must adapt to our new reality. In finding the path forward, it is inevitable that we will make mistakes, but the key is to make them boldly and learn from them fast.
Elizabeth Day has written a fantastic book, How to Fail, in which she speaks to her personal failures and how she’s managed to reshape these failures into future successes.
