Failing 100% of the time is not the path to success. That’s obvious.
But being right 100% of the time is also not the path to success. That’s less obvious.
If you’re right all the time, you’re not exploring. Not learning. Not growing.
So how much failure over a lifetime, on average, is about right to make sure you’re learning?
That’s a lot of failure. And a lot of learning.
Of course, the consequences of failure are also important to consider. There are certain areas in life where failure is not an option.
Put those in a special bucket. But those are the exceptions.
The biggest mistakes in most lives are not the small fails, they’re the missed opportunities.
