Willing to Fail??!!

I have always been inspired by the world of start-ups. Whether it’s a life-saving innovation or a time-saving gadget, bringing new products to reality requires dedicated professionals that are willing to live at the risk-reward razor’s edge.

Most people in our start-up world have a few favorite thoughts that stay in mind as they forge through the many risks toward their goal. Here are a few of mine:

"Our willingness to fail gives us the ability and opportunity to succeed where others may fear to tread."

-Vinod Khosla

“I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times, I've been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."

-Michael Jordan

"The secret of life is to fall seven times and to get up eight times."

-Paulo Coelho

The intent of these perspectives is not to make one feel better about failing… rather, the intention is to provide a view past the risks and rough times, a view toward the rewarding possibilities with sufficient persistence or re-invention.

I am glad to have the opportunity to tread this razor’s edge… and to apply what I’ve learned from both successes and failures to the next adventure!
