It’s Better to Fail Quickly

Feb 19, 2008

Mitchell Ashley has an excellent post up titled Fail Early, Fail OftenI’m seeing a little more chatter about failure, introspection about how it feels, and suggestions about how to turn it into a positive (or at least effective) experience making the rounds.

As someone who has experienced a lot of success and failure, I’m glad to see more people talking about failure in the blogosphere.  It’s a key part of the entrepreneurial experience.  It’s also an integral part of life that cannot be denied.  While it’s a lot more fun to succeed, it’s important to understand how to deal with failure.
