True Failure Comes from Not Taking Risks

"Trying is the first step towards failure" - Homer SimpsonSomething that has puzzled me for a long time is why when it comes to decision making, many people seem encased in cement and are incapable of making a call. 

Over-analyzing, triangulating and posturing all come to mind.  The reason….people are simply afraid to fail.  I have never subscribed to this mentality and think it’s a sure fire way to destroy a business.  You must take risks and you must fail (from time to time). 

Failure is a critical part of the learning process and will make you a much stronger person and team in the long run. The days of “why try because, we will only fail” are OVER! 

I say fail fast and move on and don’t let the same mistakes impede your progress.   If you embrace this ideology, there is no challenge too big!
