Celebrating (or at least dealing with) Failure


Failure. Failure. Failure.



Shoot - I said it so much that it lost it's meaning.

And I think I'll keep it that way.

Join me and Bob Bertsch for our first episode of SEASON TWO of Practicing Connection in a Complex World. In this episode, we discuss the idea of “celebrating failure.” While we know a healthy attitude towards failure can make us more innovative, failing still feels bad. How can we deal with those feelings and develop a practice helps us deal with failure? Listen in as we share some of our ideas.
