“Your little experiments will often fail. Get over it. Start another one.”
Flip: How to Turn Everything You Know on Its Head—and Succeed Beyond Your Wildest Imaginings — Peter Sheahan, page 57
I think I gravitate towards sentences like this because I am such a staunch advocate of failing as the fastest route to success.
I don’t think you’re really failing at all. You are experimenting, and experimentation is a valued skill. By definition, experiments don’t always work, nor should they.
You’re one and only recourse is to continue experimenting. If in fact you have run out of options, then you simply start another experiment. Sooner or later you just might hit the nail right on the head.
The more you fail, the more you will succeed.
