21 ways to learn from failures

  1. 21 ways to learn from failures
  2. 1. The difference between failures and mistakes
  3. Seth Godin: “A failure is a project that doesn't work, an initiative that teaches you something at the same time the outcome doesn't move you directly closer to your goal. A mistake is either a failure repeated, doing something for the second time when you should have known better, or a misguided attempt (because of carelessness, selfishness or hubris) that hindsight reminds you is worth avoiding. We need a lot more failures, I think. Failures that don't kill us make us bolder, and teach us one more way that won't work, while opening the door to things that might.”

  28. Nearling A nearling is a positive word for something new that you did with the right intentions, which has not (yet) led to the right result. The reasons for nearlings not to succeed can be diverse, the circumstances have changed; a better option has been chosen; you made an error; faith decided differently; there suddenly were other priorities, etc. Until this moment there was no right English word for this phenomenum. There is the word 'failure', yet that sounded negative. You only recognize a nearling when you look back. You can always learn from a nearling. The nearling fills a gap in the international innovation language.
