I talk about failure a lot these days.
I find it empowering and necessary. I find it quite hard to do.
The other day someone asked me for a list of my weekly failures and I started to say this:
“I regret not calling up this guy I liked and letting him know that I’d love to see him again.”
The person looked at me and said this:
“That’s not a failure. That’s a regret.”
“Aren’t they the same thing?”
“No. Regret makes you human. Failure makes you a hero.”
