Benefits of Failure

Hi, today I would like to share with you amazing commencement address I saw not long before now. This speech was done by J.K. Rowling, June 2008 for Harvard graduates, parents, grandparents and all listeners… To be honest with you, for me 2012 year was full of failures and you know, I took lessons from every single experiences I had. I have full responsibilities for that and most of them was because of hurry, so it was my fault. I need to check option more carefully in future before I choose something. That’s reminds me also a great project management method and I read about it yesterday. It is called the critical chain project management method. In very short it is about doing one thing at one moment with beam buffers and more carefully planning, preparing and after that and only after that doing what is necessary. It is management of implementation instead of management of the project itself. But you know it is subject for a longer post. Let’s return to the benefits of failure that came from by Harry Potter’s novels author and to her speech.

Have you ever had the feeling that you get the great lesson just after something? Have you ever trying to take goodness from a failure? I hope you did. Because this is something I learn from all of them. Some people said to me that they hope they did not get some of failure and that the be more cheerfully and avoid something. And to be honest with you, hope is not a good strategy for life. My dad used to told sometimes one sentence that I try to translate for you, “there are only two things that come from saint, your death and your wife” :). I think that at last I understand his words, unfortunately I am not be able to ask him in person, about it… Let’s return to the subject this quote of my dad, those both girls :) decide when they want to come to you. And you know, all other things you can change, transform, turn to your needs. I want to end up with as the same sentence as J.K. Rowling said it was quote from Lucius Annaeus Seneca “As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.” I wish you a very good life.

P ;).
