ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Pat Cashman

In the long human history of great successes, inventions and innovations, lies an even longer trail of dismal flops, mistakes and failures.

In short: For every perfectly-operating tunnel-digging machine---there are also untold numbers of “Big Berthas.”

Many of my favorite quotes are about success and failure:
“If you set your goals high and they are a failure, you will fail above everyone else’s success.”
“Failure is disguised success.”
“The best lessons learned are from other people’s mistakes.”
Here’s another favorite: “Whenever you publish quotes from other people, don’t bother giving them attribution.” OK.
From the start, the human experience has been a series of trials and errors. Think of how many dirt clods and chunks of wood cavemen must have eaten before they figured out better cuisine.
