Failing is not failure

Not all actions are the right actions but taking some action is much healthier than not. This is a good time to “Fail Often, Fail Fast, Fail Cheap”. Try new things. Some will work, others might not.

To fail is not to be a failure, to not try is to be a failure.


The above is an excerpt from an article by Jim Estill. The bolding is my emphasis. I think this is valuable advice for folks especially in these uncertain times when it is easy to be paralyzed by fear.

I’ve heard Jim Estill give his advice, “Fail often, fail fast and fail cheap.” If you’re not failing often enough maybe you’re not challenging yourself enough.

You can read the full article by Jim Estill titled, “Are You Galvanized or Paralyzed?” at the Canadian Marketing Blog.
