Failure is a good space for discovery

Came across this piece of gem while watching the latest Smarter Every Day video Prince Rupert’s Drop VS MOLTEN GLASS - Smarter Every Day 285.

Can relate to it, especially about feeling of relief once you know you have failed and the shift in mindset to make the most out of it.

A great piece is basically balanced right on the edge of failure and success.

It’s just it’s just balance right there. But you don’t really know how or how where that line is.

So you’re very excited about the idea is spectacular to you. And you go and do it even though you don’t seem like it. You’re going into with a little bit of fear and trepidation to get too close to that line because you don’t want to fail and lose it.

But once you do fail it, all that’s gone.

Now it’s game on.

It’s all about just learning, right?

So if it’s a piece that you know is going to take four and a half hours and it 3 hours, it’s kind of screwed up. And you just say, okay, let’s stop and start over. Well, you really don’t know what happens in our 3 to 5. You have no idea. So when you get to three again now, you have no idea what’s coming.

So my idea is usually if I screw up, screwed up all the way that I can find out exactly what’s hiding, what my intuition doesn’t, what vocabulary of intuition has not been developed, what part of that language.

So now a screwed up, screwed up, screwed up all the way until the finish. We know where things might happen. So now, when I go back to it, I’ve got the intuition more developed.

I mean, failure ends up being a good space for discovery, right?

But it’s like, if I’m going to fail, let’s.

Let’s keep failing, let’s keep screwing up.

Let’s see what see what’s there. Let’s go find out.

You know, like, but if you just start and put it away and start over, you’re kind of missing out on a lot.
