I’ve known for a long time that you learn more from failing than from succeeding. Based on that, I should be awfully smart, because I’ve failed a lot!
Failure is how we learn. The problem is, argues Megan McArdle, we’re forgetting that truth. We are becoming too risk-averse and that is bad for our children, for our personal lives, for our companies, and for our country.
So, do take a look at it. I think you will be glad you did. Don’t be afraid to fail.
