Fail better.

The, somewhat necessary, arrogance of the startup industry is that we think we’re the originators of many great concepts.

But that’s not always the case. Actually, I’d go so far as to say it isn’t the case more often than not.

Take the importance of failing.

Did a person ever sum up the pursuit of progress through failure better than Samuel Beckett in Worstward Ho?:

All of old. Nothing else ever. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
