Failing Forward

If you're willing to try, you're willing to fail, and that's not a bad thing. Of course no one wants to fail; however, it's the only way we can develop. We must have the opportunity to try something, watch the process and not experience our intended outcome. Learning from unintended outcomes and creating new strategies from the learning is called development or like I call it, "failing forward." It's a way of failing and moving towards progress at the same time versus failing and deciding that you simply can't accomplish what you set out to. Failure is not ideal; however, it is necessary. When you fail, seek understanding and then create a new strategy to accomplish your goal. . .assuming you still want to achieve it. Sometimes, we go through a process and it helps us to understand that we really aren't in search of the outcome we thought we thought we wanted. Failing forward requires understanding. Seek first to understand.
