The value of failing
I just watched a great video of Eric Ries, well known entrepreneur and author of The Lean Startup, discussing how failure is an essential tool of success and how schools are missing the mark on concept. While I think this is mostly true, I think schools actually do a good job of letting students fail. The flaw is that schools do not teach kids what to do with failure and they let them fail for all the wrong reasons. How do you think we should teach failure?
