We get a bunch of mixed messages about failure. On the one hand, we’re told we need to be OK with failure.
On the other hand, traditional education teaches us not to fail. We get to do a test once, we get a score, and that’s it. If we fail, we don’t resit, or relearn. We just fail … and its not good.
At Thought Leaders, we say to students 50% of your clusters (your programs) should fail. The plan over 3 years is to launch twelve clusters, have six of them succeed (get to $10k a month) and six fail.
