On Failure

A great line from Gretchen Rubin’s delightful blog (The Happiness Project):

If you’re not failing, you’re not trying hard enough.

It’s similar to a basketball truism about playing defense (“If you commit no fouls at all, you’re not trying hard enough.”), and just as true.

She has a book by the same name, which I have not read yet.
