Love that you suck.


James Dyson says this:
I made 5127 prototypes of my vacuum before I got it right. There were 5126 failures. But I learned from each one. That’s how I came up with a solution. So I don’t mind failure. I’ve always thought that schoolchildren should be marked by the number of failures they’ve had. The child who tries strange things and experiences lots of failures to get there is probably more creative…
We’re taught to do things the right way. But if you want to discover something that other people haven’t, you need to do things the wrong way. Initiate a failure by doing something that’s very silly, unthinkable, naughty, dangerous. Watching why that fails can take you on a completely different path. It’s exciting, actually.

Found this on thinkingalaud. And i can't say i know who James Dyson is, but i could not agree more.

So please, until you get that trophy, enjoy being crap. In fact, be an Olympic athlete at failure. Suck so gloriously that even Kevin Rudd will be overshadowed. Consider studying a bachelor of  'Getting it Wrong' and then major in 'Stuffing Up'.

The relationship between failure and success is so real and intense, they have each other on speed dial. This is a fact. So why not; change it, try it & embrace it. And if you can't, forget it, roll it and then smoke it...
