Great Mistakes Day!

August 13, 2018


This morning, my calendar notified me that tomorrow is National Failures Day.

I don't know exactly what that means and I'm not going to look it up—because imagining the possibilities is so much more fun! Is it a celebration of failures that this nation has experienced? Or, is it a national holiday for people who self-identify as failures?


Either way, I say, TGINFD!! I've often thought we should rename Columbus Day as Great Mistakes Day. I mean, the guy discovered a continent by accident. And if you are a self-identified failure, tomorrow is most certainly a day of celebration.


Here's what I mean.

Humans learn by iteration—by copying one another. And we most definitely learn best by failing. So, toast to yourself and all those Great Mistakes that have made you into the awesome person you are today!


Then get your butt signed up for some classes so you can keep learning — and showing off the next iteration of YOU! It's You 2.0.


Fair thee well, my fast-failing friends!
