Motivation to fail.

22 07 2009

I just read this insightful article on failure from the Harvard Business Review Blog.  It reminds me of JK Rowling’s commencement speech to Harvard’s Class of 2008.

Whether you decide to read or watch either or both, I can help sum up the stories here.

You’re given a gift of life and the intellect, creativity, and the power to make this world a better place.  We cannot accomplish anything without trying, failing, and trying again.  Abandon your fear of failure.  Failure to find a job.  Failure to make yourself “something”.  Because if you fail enough, you will learn from your mistakes and eventually succeed.  You can also learn from my mistakes by reading this blog! 🙂
