On the Rebound from Epic Failure

Great article. Few get a shot at the plate like you did. I lost $300K of investor money a few months back. Left it all on the field, failed 1 month after being selected for SXSW. It’s almost like you have to kill the idea in your head in order to move on. As such, I found inspiration in the article, The Paradox of Skill….

“Once you’ve embraced the paradox of skill, you’ll see that it’s appropriate to have an attitude of equanimity toward luck. If you’ve done everything you can to put yourself in a position to succeed, you should accept whatever results appear. Some days you’ll be lucky, and the results will exceed your expectations. Some days the results will be disappointing because of bad luck. The best plan will be to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get ready to do it again tomorrow.”
