Let me begin by making my point:
Failure is not a destination!
I don’t consider the things I am about to list as “failures”. I don’t even think about them. There are some I am realizing just now that they should be under this classification. Guess why? I move on quick!
I hope this will encourage you more than any pep talk I could craft out. Here are 26 things I have “failed” at thus far:
A digital magazine
A group dedicated to inventions
Book publishing through literary agents
Social network (I called it Utalk)
Crypto trading (before I understood it)
An ICO with a remote team
Printed t-shirt concept
Talent discovery (for football)
Health and fitness startup
Work with a VC firm
An eBook concept
Member of a tech firm
Social media manager for a particular celebrity
Work for a crypto firm
A mobile app
Ubox (a concept company)
Medium partner program (before I understood CM)
A bitcoin book
A funny social media account
Researcher for a big firm
This is by no means all I have tried. It is all I can recall for now. And for most of them, I quit because I found that it wasn’t the best expression of my time and life that I wanted.
Also, if you noticed all of those things are in the areas of leadership, entrepreneurship, communication, and investing. Right now, my focus is on something I should have mastered before any of those, and that is marketing.
I have no deep regrets or negative emotions about all these things that didn’t work out and you shouldn’t about yours too!
JUST. MOVE. ON.
