Success is normally found in a pile of mistakes...
We usually see success when it’s been polished up a little like a diamond. It’s pretty, and everyone wants it. That’s where the problem comes for those seeking success. Often they’ve been deluded by appearances that success starts out looking like the finished product.

Nope. Success, as I have written before, is messy. You’ll bump into things, make mistakes that’ll have you cringing with embarrassment at times. You’ll waste time on dumb ideas, get distracted, and waste more time. But, that’s all part of the journey.

Russell Bragg reflected on the truth about business with this quote from Tim Fargo, angel investor and entrepreneur:

Success is normally found in a pile of mistakes...mistakes should be examined, learned from, and discarded; not dwelled upon and stored.
