The Importance of Failure

We’re talking with Brad Staats. I read Brad’s book, Never Stop Learning, as part of a book club I belong to. The whole book is good, but I really was struck by his chapter on failure. Now, anyone with a podcast knows that the way is littered with failure. Guests who drone on and on, recordings that fail, sound that makes it sound like your podcast is under the sea…I’ve pretty much done everything about this podcast wrong at least once. So, when Brad wrote that failure is necessary and good? Made me feel better! I raised my daughter to be brave, and I believe in taking risks. So why does failure feel so awful if it’s a necessary part of the process?
