President & CEO, First Book
Failure is one of my favorite topics. Because you can fail without ever succeeding, but you can never succeed without failing.
Now I think what helps everybody overcomes failure, which maybe more important in my own failures, is been brave enough to continue to question. To test it, to test it. Test ideas, test new ideas. And then when they don’t work out, pull back and go a different direction.
Don’t be afraid that everything you try is not a home run, because it is never going to be.
