Ramblings of a bald man.

Permission to Fail

Rate this Entry
I was asked today, 'Why can you create eyewear that other offices say can't be done?' The answer was easy.

I allow myself to fail.

Actually I enjoy the failure.

When I made my first
Franklin Bifocal I blew through 3 sets of lenses before I got it right. The difference is I didn't just fail three times I actually discoverd three unique ways of not making a proper Franklin Bifocal.

The key is to fail intelligently much like DARPA has done with their
last week.

Failure is good but only if you learn. Failure without learning is just spending money.

    Very informative. A fail is an opportunity to succeed that was taken advantage of. Your post was a nugget of wisdom. Thank you for sharing it.
