The Best Resume Is The One You Keep

The reverse resume.

It’s a compilation of the things that might have been if not for a mistake or a miscalculation or just taking your eye off the ball for a moment.

It’s not a list of failures as much as a list of what caused the failure.

And, more importantly, what you learned from the failure.

These are notes you write to your future self or advice you would give to your younger self if you had it to do over again.

Experience is the best teacher…

…but only if you remember the lesson.
