Learn to Fail, Teach Trust

“In a fear-based, failure-averse culture, people will consciously or unconsciously avoid risk. They will seek instead to repeat something safe that’s been good enough in the past.

We must think of the cost of failure as an investment in the future.” – Ed Catmull, Pixar Co-founder.
