In such a we-all-get-a-trophy world, we expect to win. So when we fail, we feel like that’s it. We’ll never get to be successful because we are by definition failure. We didn’t get a trophy. We must not be good enough.
I want to encourage those who feel like they’re failing today. If you’re failing… good. That means it’s time to start.
“If you put a project into the world and it works for a while. *high five* But it’s not gonna work forever. None of them do. There’s nobody riding a horse and buggy. Horse and buggies worked a really long time ago, they don’t work anymore. So when it stops working, good news you get to make another project.”

If you’re failing today. Good. Thank you for failing. Now it’s time to get excited about what’s next.
