It’s one of those quotes that I really like; the one about the pasta, I mean. But whenever I drop the line into conversation, it never seems to get a laugh. It must be my delivery!
But anyway, the real quote – you know the one – the one about the past; that’s what I really wanted to mention today.
“Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it!” – Churchill
Failure is a great teacher.
If you always view failure as the empirical evidence that some particular idea, method or way is not right, then you will be able to continually make adjustments to your approach, until you find what does work. This is the mentality of really successful people and it is the right way to deal with failure. If you fail, always try to learn from the experience.
