Fail More: Embrace, Learn, and Adapt to Failure As a Way to Success
Failure carries with it a sense of low self-worth and a reflection of one as a person. While that may be true, this book argues that failure is necessary for success. Hence the overall message is to embrace failure as it helps one learn from one’s mistakes. Failure by itself is not a good teacher but needs analysis, feedback, and evaluation against alternatives to truly enable one to learn from failure.
Some of the specific advice this book advocates include: recognizing procrastination as fear; fear of failing leads to indecision, which in itself carries consequences; a large goal needs to be broken down into smaller milestones to be executable; seek feedback and receive it with humility; non-action is in itself a choice; pilot your idea before going big; evaluate the worst case and best case scenario (one may find the worst case may not be as bad as imagined); emotions drive one to succeed, but let logic dictate the viability of the idea.
The book is essentially a template (to be modified as needed) to pursue one’s ideas. These can be applied to business as well as other parts of one’s life. The writing is clear and at times uplifting for those who are at a low point in their lives. Above all, it provides hope that one can indeed achieve one’s dreams.
