Embracing Failure Answered

Some of the best advice I've received was to "fail faster." You want to get the mistakes out of the way, learn from them, and move on as quickly as possible. Don't live in fear of failure as you'll be stuck before you leave the starting gate.

It's been good advice and in the spirit of embracing failure, here's a Fail blog that collects Fail images from all 'round the Internets. Enjoy.

Edison (not the inventor of the light bulb) said something like:
"I didn't fail. I just found 1000 ways how not to make a lightbulb"

Failure is fun, and it gives you something to look foward to. Sometimes I will work on a project for hours and hours, and fail horribly. But the fun isn't the result, it's the actual making of the project that is fun.

If you don't fail (at least at some things), you're not learning....
