Transcript

  • 1. 21 ways to learn from failures
  • 2. 1. The difference between failures and mistakes
  • 3. Seth Godin:“A failure is a project that doesnt work, an initiative thatteaches you something at the same time the outcomedoesnt move you directly closer to your goal.A mistake is either a failure repeated, doing something forthe second time when you should have known better, or amisguided attempt (because of carelessness, selfishnessor hubris) that hindsight reminds you is worth avoiding.We need a lot more failures, I think. Failures that dont killus make us bolder, and teach us one more way that wontwork, while opening the door to things that might.”http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2011/12/the-difference-between-a-failure-and-a-mistake.html

NearlingA nearling is a positive word for something new that you did withthe right intentions, which has not (yet) led to the right result.The reasons for nearlings not to succeed can be diverse, thecircumstances have changed; a better option has been chosen; youmade an error; faith decided differently; there suddenly were otherpriorities, etc.Until this moment there was no right English word for thisphenomenum. There is the word failure, yet that soundednegative. You only recognize a nearling when you look back. Youcan always learn from a nearling. The nearling fills a gap in theinternational innovation language.http://www.newshoestoday.com/site/offerings/nearling
