Success has a certain adrenaline, urging us one to greater effort. Failure, or at least lack of success, has the opposite effect.
Or at least, it does for me. I’m feeling a bit stuck on both projects I’m working on, not seeing any results or progress. So I turned to YouTube for some inspiration. (Really I was wasting time watching cat videos, but that’s not the point.)
Then I stumbled on this clip of JK Rowling talking about the benefits of failure. If I can reap half of a percent from my failure as she did from hers, I’ll consider myself blessed.
