Failure: What can we learn from failing?

It’s true that you can learn much more from failure than from success, and it’s true that every successful person went through a series of failures before reaching the top, but still it’s very difficult to deal with.

So what can we learn from failing?

Thanks to the following guests for participating:

Comedian, TV presenter, and co-host of the Blank podcast and co-author of the book Blank Jim Daly, who spoke to me in depth this week.

Parenting teenagers expert and psychologist Angela Karanja

Creative genius consultant, artist and author Mandy Nicholson

Here are some of the resources from the show:

Award-winning author and journalist Elizabeth Day explains how failure can teach us lessons we would never otherwise have understood.

Books looked at this week:

Giles Paley-Phillips and Jim Daly: Blank: Why It’s Fine to Falter and Fail, and How to Pick Yourself Up Again

Elizabeth Day: How to Fail: Everything I’ve Ever Learned From Things Going Wrong

PS. I do not receive commission for reviewing books and talks.
