On the surface this seems like one of the most bizarre events in the business sector. But Tom Peters wrote in The Little Big Things, about celebrating failure and not chastising it, when failure results from attempts at innovation and not apathy. Someone once told me early in my career to 'hurry up and get your failures out of the way, because that's the only way you're going to make progress.'
We learn from our mistakes, a trite comment, but true nonetheless, and more often than not, success stems from perseverance in the face of failure.
So I ask this question of all of you, what would you do if you KNEW you would not fail?
