The very wise Rex Hammock recently pulled up something he wrote in 2000:
Even smart businesses managed by smart individuals and smart investors die. Businesses start and die every day. They always have. They always will. I am old enough – and have been fortunate enough – to have succeeded significantly and failed miserably and frankly, the failures have done more for me than the successes.
Rex has nailed why failure is an important topic. I agree. In fact, I have written a whole series on it, as part of my masterplan to define failure as a positive concept.
