Success and failure are relative states of perception that we define based on expectations and perceived value.

Less innovative organizations misunderstand the nature of success, equating it with ideal process. For people in those companies, success means following process irrespective of results. However, innovation suffers when results become slave to process.

In truth, innovation and success require discovery, as we adapt, learn, and progress toward the goal.

    Two steps forward and one step back is still a step in the right direction. If you are successful more than half the time you just are not challenging yourself enough and you will never realize your full potential.

    Close your eyes, open your mind. Walk backwards until you hit something interesting.

    there's no success or failure in life, we all have one common goal, to become fertilizer for our mother earth one day.
