Fail Forward

Fail Forward Fast

The quickest way to move forward on your goals is to leap into the unknown, try things, and fail your way to the target. Willingness to take risk and fail publicly will accelerate your progress.

  • What’s the worst that could happen?
  • What’s a more likely failure outcome?
  • If it fails, what happens next?

Coming up next… Let’s Get Ready to Ride, Pardner!

We've come so far, and there’s just one more lesson to go. This is it! Time to take all our plans, goals, and big scary risks and get to work.
