Losing is the New WinningApr 07, 2014
In her new book - "Losing is the New Winning" - Carol Dweck argues that a willingness to court failure can be a precursor to growth. Dweck holds, persuasively, that successful people are not the ones who cultivate a veneer of perfection, but rather those who understand that failing is part of getting smarter and better.
The title of this article caught my eye because, even though I deeply appreciate success, if I am honest with myself I have learned far more from my failures than my successes.
OK, I don’t plan to fail. But if I accept that I can shift and adapt if some plan of mine doesn’t work out, then I am far more likely to stretch myself and thus increase the odds of succeeding with something that I haven’t tried before. Here I find my strength.
