The biggest failure is the failure to learn from a failure.



Prevent  Stupid Failures

A noble failure is about learning from a failure that occurred regardless all efforts to anticipate and avoid it.

A stupid failure is about making the same mistake again.

To prevent stupid failures, develop a habit of taking a systemic view of things. Analyze the entire system that involves people, their perceptions, and a sequence of thoughts, decisions, events, feelings, actions and interactions.

Failure is not an accident it' the result of interactions in a system.

Look at the different elements in a situation as parts of a system which functions for good or ill. Take different perceptual positions to gain a better understanding of the situation. Empathize with other stakeholders to understand their needs, expectations and desires.

Once you understand how the system is working for or against you structure things differently, so you can avoid 'failure' again in the future.
