How To Always Succeed

by Robert Rizzo | Twitter, Facebook,

Everyday companies, organizations and teams and individuals make hundreds and even thousands of decisions. Each of these decisions impacts other decisions. The result is a perception of success or failure along the decision-making chain. Of course, everyone likes to think that they never make a wrong decision. It’s good to be right. But failure is inevitable. The law of averages is against us.

So the bigger question is not if we will fail…but when. And how will we respond…to ourselves, to our team-mate, to our spouse, to our child. I think it is important to develop an environment in which failure is not only accepted, but expected and appreciated. Because true growth and innovation only comes through failure. Why not spend more time working on helping people through their failures than beating them up for their failures.

“If you want to succeed, double your failure rate.” ~ Thomas J. Watson, former IBM executive
