You hear that failure builds character. You need to learn from your mistakes. People advise: ‘Fail early and fail often’. Well, this is a misconception. Learning from mistakes is overrated. What do you really learn from mistakes? You might learn what not to do again, but how good is that to you? You still don't know what you should do next. You may want to learn from failures of others. But, … other businesses’ failures are just that: other businesses’ failures. If other people can not manage their business succesfuly, it has nothing to do with you.
Contrast that with learning from your success, and success of others. It's exactly how nature works. Evolution doesn't linger on past failures, it's always building upon what worked. So should you. Now, this may have something to do with you. And with us, too, because we at Comitium are committed to help our clients succeed.
