Fail Well

Limit the blast radius.

Know that you will fail at some point. Hedge on all outcomes, reduce the amount of damage that any single decision can have.

How you deal with failure is more important than how you deal with success.

Everyone who is pushing themselves will fail. Understand that everyone – including you – will fail. How you deal with, and learn from, your failure is more important than knowing the answers in the first place.

Look for self reflective people who can understand and learn from their failure.
