Mistakes! A series of failures as you follow a path of persistent long-term effort characterized by ongoing learning and a reputation that improves over time.
The giant flame out
Giving up in the dip
The critic, on the sidelines
The scam, the short-sighted selfish pitch
It’s the flameouts and the scams that get all the publicity, but it’s the long-term commitment that pays off. I have nothing but applause for those brave enough to fail, and fail again. It’s not so much a failure as it is one more thing that won’t work.
And the critics and the non-starters? They will get little respect from me.
Some say, “go big or stay home,” but I prefer, “keep going.” Drip by drip.
