“Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making the same one a second time.” – George Bernard Shaw

We cannot succeed without making mistakes. Mistakes teach us valuable lessons that lead to greater success. As long as we fail forward and don’t ruin the opportunity to learn from the mistakes, we have succeeded at moving forward.

Remember Edison found 10,000 ways not to build a light bulb before hitting success.


“Follow effective actions with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.” – Peter Drucker

I have begun reflecting as much as possible. Each day I try to limit the time that I spend re-checking my emails for the thousandth time. Use reflection as a time to clear your head, find inspiration, and make an attack plan to take action.
