Chinese food – I love it. And I always find the fortunes inside the cookies to be very entertaining. Occasionally, you’ll find a gem, like this:
Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.
Failure is an important part of life, and learning that is an important part of the growing-up process. If you haven’t failed at something, you aren’t trying enough stuff!
Just this week, I’ve been feeling very failure-y. This site re-design is a hot mess, and the person with whom I was working hasn’t been as much help as I expected. I’m not great at fancy WordPress stuff. But I’ll get through. Either I’ll figure out a way to fix it myself, or I’ll find someone that can do it for me.
When it’s all over, I am sure that I’ll feel like it was a good learning experience. I’m not feeling that way right now, but I need to pick up and move forward.
So, try something new. If it fails, then figure out how you can do it again better. The fortune cookie said so.
