Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

Know that we are not alone when we fail

None of us always succeeds. We all fail at some point in something we try to learn anew. If we know this, we know we’re not alone.

For people with a fixed mindset, failing once, or more than once is a sign of not being able to succeed. They think being the best means being always the best. And by “best” they understand someone who does things right all the time. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

Everyone fails because it’s the best way to learn and the right way.

Failing is nothing but exploring the chart of learnability.

The wrong way is valuable knowledge. And the most valuable is knowing we’re not alone when we fail.

”Try again. Fail again. Fail better. (Samuel Beckett )
