Learning through Failure

I spent a great deal of my years working as a business consultant with research and development scientists. In the pharmaceutical industry most initial attempts to find significant breakthroughs end initially in failure. The drug may have too many side effects, or in the course of the studies its efficacy does not meet the necessary standards. However, in almost each one of these failures there is learning that enables future drugs to be successful. The same applies to most worthwhile goals and adventures. Often we cannot anticipate the inevitable obstacles and challenges. Instead of giving up, the question which almost always leads to what we desire is “what did I learn from this attempt? ‘There are no shortcuts to the stars, but failures are only temporary blocks to the goals we choose.They only become permanent when we quit.
