How to Fail Often And Fast

How to Fail Often And Fast

One of the things that holds many people back from real advancement is that they don’t fail enough. Or not fast enough.

Let me explain.

On our way to finding out what works and what doesn’t, what we like and what not, what we’re successful at and what not, we need to try out a couple of things.

Sometimes we want something, not realizing it’s not the thing for us. And when it fails we’re devastated. But in hindsight we’re glad because it opened the doors for something else.

Whatever it is you’re failing at, the moment you fail it frees up resources for other things: mentally, emotionally, financially, time-wise, …

So, if you want to advance quickly, don’t be afraid to fail. Failing shows you the things that don’t work.

In fact, try to fail fast. Get that “No”. That rejection. That note that says, “this doesn’t work that way.”

It frees you up to go ahead so you’re not stuck with things you don’t want and that don’t work.
