Getting it right often requires failure.

Thinking about someone that I admire and what makes them able to do what they do. One answer is that they act without fear.

Generally we get a lot of chances in life. If you look at people that have done amazing things or built amazing businesses, they usually do not get it right on the first try. What’s more, they might have failed miserably in the past. Maybe they lost tens of thousands of dollars, maybe they filed for bankruptcy, maybe they got up for a presentation and completely blanked, maybe no one used to like them and they found a way to connect with people.

It is so easy to think we have to do it right the first time. But what is right? There is not always an answer and often we don’t get in trouble for doing it wrong, we just learn to do better next time.
