Smart Failing

If you’re not failing, you’re not trying hard enough.

Many of us live in mediocrity. The fear of failing cripples us. So we make excuses for ourselves. We hide behind the famous “I’m not ready!” and “that’s not for me”

Success requires failure (it’s how we learn) but it also requires smart failing. Smart failing is failing in service of learning.

In smart failing, you set a goal, prep yourself as best as you can and start trying. As you try, you’ll fail. Be okay with that knowing that your failures are a crucial part of the learning journey towards achieving your goal.

The intent should never be to fail. It should be to learn though failure.

So fail but fail smart.
