Duncan Nugget® #344: Your Strategy For Dealing With Failure


Duncan Nugget® #344: Your Strategy For Dealing
With Failure A professor once asked me, “Al, in your opinion,
why do students cheat?” “Because they have an ineffective strategy
for dealing with failure.” Think about that. When people don’t know how to deal with failure
they’ll do anything to avoid it. Nobody wants to fail, but exceptional people
aren’t afraid to fail. They develop a strategy. Here’s mine: 1. Forgive yourself. The Duncan Nugget® that I probably quote
the most is #21: Failure is only permanent if you quit. I might get sad. I might get mad. But I refuse to beat myself up about it. 2. Master the lesson. Analyze what went wrong and don’t do it again. Duh! 3. Work hard to get better. Learn and practice what you learned. If you don’t know how to improve then ask
someone who knows what s/he is talking about. That’s my strategy. Million Dollar Question:
What is your strategy for dealing with failure?
