My Greatest Failure? Is There Such A Thing?
I'm not sure that being a "failure" is necessarily a bad thing.
I got a D- once on a report card (stupid Geometry Theorems!), but I got through it.
I "failed" as a Rock Star.
There are even times when I look back over a situation with my kids and briefly think, "man, I'm failing as a parent."
Then I snap out of it.
I was never going to be a Mathematician.
I made a CD back in the day, but how many people actually make it BIG?
As for my kids, I think they got a pretty good dad, if I do say so myself.
So, this failing thing...
There's a saying, "fail early and often," and in some circumstances, I believe it's 100% correct.
Sure, you can fail. But if you learn from it, and grow as an individual, is it truly "failing?"
