First, the Marshmallow Challenge:
Then one could wonder:
Why do people get in to all kinds of unnecessary bureaucracy and complexity?
Why not simply this?
Because of fear of failure.
Because they can’t handle failure well.
Because lack of training in handling failures.
Because of early lack of failures.
Because of early rap for failures made.
Because parent’s fear of failure.
And so it goes.
But how to break this vicious cycle of inherited fear of failure?
You help remove the person’s fear of failure by helping him fail more. And then you coach him to like his failures because he understands that there is great potential in there for learning.
Today’s motto: “Challenge. Fail fast, fail often. Learn.”
