mjwhitesox“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”  – Michael Jordan

I love this quote because of the truth it contains. Throughout your career you can play it safe and never risk failure… but then you will also never really succeed.

It should be easy to try and fail.  That’s one of the reasons we’re building KickoffLabs.com.  Your first three ideas may not attract any customers… but the 4th one could get enough attention that your motivated to make it your life passion for years to come.  The faster and cheaper you fail on the first three gives you more time to spend on the winning idea.

  • This is probably the single most important advice that you can give to someone looking to start a business or build a new product. Although sometimes its hard to fail fast enough. I think you have to try and figure out what is the least amount of work you can do to get to something useful completed and then get that out to the world ASAP.

  • Great advice. In addition, it also helps if you really believe in the “risky” decisions you make.

    Learning from failures as a result of actions one doesn’t believe in doesn’t yield much in the way of change.

    Learning from failures as a result of actions one does believe in (and is passionate above) DOES yield both change and learning.

    This is very similar to the scientific method. Scientists are some of the most happy people when they fail. Because they put a method and purpose to their work such that either with failure OR success, either outcome proves a point and helps them learn.

    This line of thinking and advice is always good to keep in mind. Sometimes tough, but definitely worth it.
