Everyone experiences failure, yet discussions surrounding it often carry a negative connotation. Failure is frequently associated with embarrassment or being labeled as a failure. However, it's important to recognize that every setback presents an opportunity for learning and growth. As Craig Groeschel aptly puts it, "If you want to succeed, plan to fail." Thank you for sharing your insights and personal example.

Thanks, Xhulio. Graig quotes fit me in the initiative to open the toleadwell platform. What are you planning to fail lately?

I just recently failed to launch a blog on February (that was my plan) but I learned to give myself grace and I've had more time and better ideas because of this. So I think I failed well.

Very Interesting! It would help to know more about the difference between basic failures and complex failures. I could see how crashing a ship on the rocks, could be either basic or complex. As unintentional errors are lining up... heading for a complex failure. How can I discern this alignment of unintentional errors and fix it before they become a complex failure?

Thank you, David, for the comment. The author goes at length to explain the difference between basic and complex. Unlike intelligent failure, both basic and complex are done in a known field; intelligent failuers happens in uncharted territory. It is possible that complex failures might stem from a series of basic failures but the final results , failure is hard to track down to a single action or person. That is the nature of complexity .

It was! And funny enough, was just reviewing some quotes from it this morning for an upcoming post.

That may be the true measure of how great a book is. How often do you come back to it to review?

She surely strikes a nerve. Failure though is such a normal reality. Looking forward to your take on it (post)
