Failing Forward – 10,000 Times

Hola Todos!

Learning from failure and failing forward is a familiar theme here on DigNuggetville.  Last night, while at the Science Fair for my kids, I saw an excellent quote from none other than professor innovation himself – Thomas Edison – on failing forward.

In various talks on the development process of the light bulb, Mr. Edison said:


“I have not failed 10,000 times. I have successfully found 10,000 ways that will not work.”


Something to think about today.

Best regards,
