I just finished whoever makes the most mistakes wins (You can get it here). Wow, what a great read. The simple and clear principles are great reminders that success isn’t what we think it is.
I have felt like the most important thing in life is succeeding and I have also felt the other end of the pendulum where the most important thing is not failing and thereby not looking like a fool. But this book really tries to show that failure can bring out some of our best successes. And in fact failure can push us forward, to keep trying newer and scarier ideas.
True innovators are not success driven, nor are they fear avoidant. They have a healthy balance of success as a by product for great work, but failure as just one more thing that they had to learn the hard way.
this truly is a great book. Read it. Enjoy it. Then take a risk and do something.
