“It helps to see failure as a road and not a wall.” Scott Adams
I read this article today by Scott Adams, the creator of the Dilbert cartoons. Turns out he failed a fair bit before he got to being the amazingly-successful creator of a hugely-syndicated cartoon. Who’d of thunk it?
I loved this quote – lifted directly from his article – as it really highlighted the journey-nature of our work as humans, as artists, as creators.
Failure is a road, not a wall. We ought to continue to travel the road until we find success, rather than stopping because we hit a stumbling block.
