Laurie Buchanan, PhD. recently published an important reminder for The Good Men Project titled, Failure IS an Option. She opens by referencing Designing Your Life.
“Stanford University’s most popular class, Designing Your Life, is taught by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans. In it, they say, “One of the principles of design thinking is that you want to ‘fail fast and fail forward,’ into your next step.” It’s not to avoid failure. In fact, failure can be a launchpad for creativity.” They go on to say, “Failure is just the raw material of success.”
She goes on to cite far more in her timely piece as we begin 2019.
