Thanks, Mr. Chandler.


“The only real failure in life is the failure to try.”

Fantastic post Steve!

Randy Stuart

My friend Marc, a fantastic photographer, was getting frustrated by not getting into any of the many photo contests he had entered. Not just not winning, but not even getting in.

He arrived at a beautiful plan which he called the Epic Fail. His new goal was to try and fail as grandly as he possibly could. And if he failed enough, eventually he would fail at failing...and thereby succeed at what he was after to begin with.

Fail so badly that you win by failing. Genius!

The baby reference is insanely good. So true!! You've helped me a great deal, Steve. Your words are clear and uncluttered. Your writing is so personal and inspiring. Thank you for reminding us to keep doing, to keep moving, to keep failing. I appreciate you so.
