Failing Forward

I talk with my Coaching clients about giving their ideas a test run. You learn in the process to keep what works and discard what doesn’t. And I’ve heard that described as “failing forward.” I love that concept. It really reframes failure.

    “Failing forward”–what a great way of conceptualizing this. I will have to remember this.

    It makes the mistakes much easier to bear and get past to think of it this way. I am failing forward everyday!
