“On the road to invention, failures are just problems that have yet to be solved.”
My reading this morning brought me to this little gem:
Fearing failure stifles creativity and progress. If you’re not failing, you’re not going to innovate. Do your product or service a favor: embrace failure and blueprint a plan that affords you the opportunity to do it early and often.
I can’t tell you how strongly I agree with this statement. Whether it is product design and prototyping or more generally concerning your entrepreneurship path, the worlds biggest failures end up becoming the worlds most successful people and products. I will write a more in-depth post on this soon.

Thank you for the reminder, on this day, in particular, a failing-Friday, for me. Looking forward to reading the follow-up…
Your welcome. Hope the day is better from here on out.
Haven’t crossed this path yet as i’m not in production yet, but I look at success and failure in the same light; if i fail, i’ve learnt some great lessons and if i succeed, then I’m also winning. For me its a win-win situation.
