I want to first express my gratitude to all of the amazing people that I meet, and especially those that loving share their stories with me. This trust means a great deal to me and I am so grateful to write about so many fun, interesting, and incredible people!
Ok, now to discuss FailFest!
For the main article I wrote on FailFest, please visit www.atFishers.com.
On November 19th, Launch Fishers played host to a variety of speakers who really don’t use the f-word. And by f-word, I mean “failure”
While I enjoyed all of the speakers that I listened to, I am going to share my notes from Susan Baroncini-Moe’s presentation. Here are the highlights from my notes on her speech:
6 steps to transform failure into success
- let yourself feel the emotions – let it go (give a time limit)
- acknowledge your successes – from the experience, spin your view – fresh perspective
- analyze mistakes – clear plan, clear goals, strategy in place
- strategize the future
- take action
ok, so maybe I only got the necessary 5 steps…
you can transform failure into success you decide what happens next, most importantly – failing doesn’t make you a failure – you decide who you are going to be tomorrow.
My favorite quote came from a guy who has a sign on his desk that reads:
“Fucking up two things at once does not count as multi-tasking.”
Best gratitude moment: John Wechsler thanking his mom for his spinal column.
