Ask the Right Question

“Did I get better today?”

All this time I’ve been asking the wrong question – you can always rationalize how you might have gotten better or where you improved on the margin.

A more appropriate question:

“Have you failed yet today?”

Failure creates learning opportunities. Failure creates room to get better. Failure is black and white. Cut and dry. You can’t hide from failure. Either you did or you didn’t.

You are bound to fail many times before you succeed. So, Have you failed yet today?
