Fail forward!

Fail forward!

They say “…in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes,” but I think they forgot something.

Failure.

It’s also certain.

Which totally sucks.

However, we do have a choice in how we move forward from our failures. For example, when I totally FUBAR things, I recover by eating a pint of butter pecan ice cream and moping in bed reading fantasy novels for three days.

Kidding.

Mostly.

Actually, my preferred method of coming back after I totally screw up is to look for the opportunity.

I made a mistake, sure. I do that a lot. But I also try to figure out what didn’t work, and take that learning with me into the future.

I have a chance to grow and do better next time.

Sure, I could let failure consume me.

Or, I can pick myself up, learn what I can from it, and keep going.

It’s my choice, and so far, I keep choosing door number 2. And it’s working for me.

What are your thoughts?

How do you overcome failure?
