I love losing

I’ve just spent a week on a leadership course in sunny Mallorca (lucky me!) and I’ve learnt something about myself.

I’m really competitive.

This isn’t massively new info for me; bits it’s been a while since I’ve awakened the dragon…

What I also learnt is that I also love to lose. Losing is actually when I learn the most about myself, and can actually get some good feedback on where to improve my performance.

We watched a video about a company called IDEO based in California. They are the kings and queens of innovation. One of their rules is:

Fail often to succeed sooner

Which sounds a bit like:

Don’t be afraid to lose, because then you’ll be afraid to win.

Anyway, that’s enough quote inventing for one day. Check out the awesome IDEO in action in the link below…
