Elon Musk has spent considerable time and money to perfect rocket landing technology. It took years, but he finally did it.
Some say that failures are an inherent part of learning. It is a bit sad, because it gives us a perspective of pain and misery that must be borne before knowledge is acquired. In many cases that demotivate us and deprives us of the desire to learn.
In my life I had so many failures that I actually got used to them. The loss of time, money, friends, health... are the costs of learning. But what did I learn? Hmmm...
The most fascinating thing is that this learning doesn't end. Who knows, maybe the most intensive lessons appears right now? How many mistakes will I make? How much defeats before me? What will i lose?
What is the most important lesson from failures that are part of our lives? I think is overcome of fear of them. Every time when we fear less, then we open ourselves up to increasingly difficult and risky actions. That is why we can go forward. As people and as civilization.
I'll go forward.
