“Failure is Not an Option”

“It is NOT “Ok” to fail. When you fail you ruin peoples’ lives, you waste money, you waste time, you waste many things… So don't get a cavalier attitude about failure. Having said that the odds are you WILL fail so the question is - “what lessons did you learn that will increase the probability of success next time?”
