Katarina Skoborne shares some great strategies from personal expereince for managing failure, or the prospect of failure
The thing with failure, though, is you have to own up to it - own it, in fact - in order to absorb what it can teach you. For as long as you reject what happened, the positive parts won’t sink in. And it’s hard to do that in an environment that’s not as accepting of failure as Silicon Valley – i.e. almost everywhere else. Because people fear failure, they don’t want to hear that it happened near them. So they will make up all sorts of excuses for you to avoid the issue.
