When you think of Wal-Mart, you don’t necessarily think of failure. But from what Tom Peters tells us, it wasn’t uncommon at all. I found this fascinating.
We run from failure like we would run from an angry bull. Because just like an angry bull, failure is never good. It implies things like malfunction, crashing, disappointment, fiasco, let down and collapse. Consequently, we’ve been paralyzed by the fear of failure.
Tom Peter’s video is an important reminder that failure is such an important part of business. Failure is good for business. If one studies successful business people, one will see that they all have failed and failed often. And many argue that their failure is what led them to greatness.
Here is a crazy thought… what if, failure was actually the goal?
By failing, we know what works and what doesn’t, which helps us win. In other words, one wins, because one fails. Does that make sense?
