Fail Year

Sometime last fall I started thinking of 2013 as “Fail Year.” And no, I don’t mean it in a negative way at all.

First, what does it mean? Fail Year is about:

  • being willing to try something that might not work
  • being vulnerable
  • embracing risk
  • choosing projects wisely
  • choosing boundaries that can allow projects to fail without being catastrophic
  • using fear as a compass

It’s about living wholeheartedly and getting in the arena. It’s about showing up and embracing the potential of failure in exchange for caring enough to do the work.
