“The best leaders are simply the best learners, and life is their laboratory.” –Kouzes and Posner
Eventually any leader, no matter how talented and resolute they are, will fail. What sets that individual apart is whether or not they learn from failure. The exact same formula will render the exact same failure. Why make the same mistake twice? If you change the variables, you change the results. You might fail again, but your one step closer to success.
And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary (Galatians 6:9, ESV).
