No, I'm not crazy. At least I don't think I am. But I do know this...when I fail I do a hell of a lot of learning. It's not that I look forward to things going poorly or letting down my various customer groups. But the reality is sometimes I fail. Sometimes we all fail. So I've decided that I need to stop worrying about it, and start embracing the learning that follows. Here's the catch, the only way you can take something positive from failure is if you admit that you've failed. If you're one of those leaders who is constantly making excuses for why things didn't work out I need to tell you something...
You're the problem, not the people, or systems, or circumstances. It's you.

How About You
Don't settle, don't get comfortable, and for crying out loud don't let 2011 end without you having failed at something. No one is that good.
I'd love to hear from you.
