This timeless quote by Nobel laureate Samuel Beckett is inspiring and simply means to learn from ones missteps, learn our lessons and get going again. 'The most important thing is to strive to move forward continually. Some days we make great progress in some areas; other days we seem to slide a bit. If we were to chart our progress on a board, it has ups and downs, but overall it should move upward as we live and learn from our mistakes and failures. This is the heart of Failing Up.'

"Ever tried. Ever failed.
No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better." ~ Samuel Beckett
New mantra: Fail fast
Every day that we wake up, we get another chance to get it right, to bounce back from failures big and small - to fail up.
In a snit, or a bad mood. Pouty.
"Man, we were all set to have a good time but once we got there, she was acting all doyled out. So we went someplace else."
