Have you ever not gone ahead with great ideas or projects you’re really excited about because you were afraid of failing? I certainly have, on too many occasions. That’s why I want to share this quote with you: “Failure is one of the fastest ways of learning – ask any toddler. Small children do not stay up late at night reading the „how to walk“ manual, learning the mechanics. They flop, crawl, stand up, and flop and crawl some more. There are bumps along with steps and statistically more failure than success, but it never seems to dampen their enthusiasm. (…) Learning is the key here. Failing at any action, even failing to take action, is a rich learning opportunity. (…) there is a difference between failing at something and being a failure. People are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole. They are not failures, even if they fail sometimes.” (Henry Kimsey-House, Karen Kimsey-House, Phillip Sandahl) 19. February 2019.
