Some Quotes from “Whoever Makes the Most Mistakes Wins”.

Here are some great thoughts that I’ve picked out so far from this book.

“When we look back on our lives, the parts that once seemed triumphant can pale in significance, while episodes that appeared trivial at the time now look crucial.  Successes we see in hindsight, made us complacent,while our set backs pushed us.”

“It’s not success or failure but success and failure.  When it comes to this issue both/and is a far more useful concept than either/or.  We can’t cleave these two so clearly and shouldn’t try.  using success and failure as a yard stick limits our ability to create, innovate, and take risks . . . Pursuing success is like chasing the horizon, and failure is an integral part of an interesting life.”
