Failure Does Not Mean It Is Over

Don’t be afraid to start – just don’t get analysis paralysis. Be agile, and try things, even if they are not perfect. And if you fail, then learn from the mistakes and try again, Or, call it a day, and try something totally different. It all boils down to people and character. The strong survive – if someone has backed you once before then there is a good chance they will back you again. If you work hard, and are humble and resourceful, then people will follow your next move. People don’t mind when we make mistakes. It is what we do next that matters. Just keep looking at the warning signs. The numbers never lie. Digits aside, there are many reasons things could go south. The law could change, or a new technology could blow you out of the water. Whatever the reason, always remember that people are the swing, and a good team can always pivot.
