I have not failed.

I’ve just found 10 000 ways

that won’t work.

~ Thomas Edison

A quote.  A musing.

And I thought, why not throw in a video?

Notice how I apparently got a thing for the thing.  Plus there’s the deep insight that the thing is the thing!

Don’t say I didn’t warn ya!

    I LOVE this post! And that Tom Edison quote is one of my favorite. Your video is great at discussing how you feel in the midst of the “failure” and how to question it. Thanks!

    An…you and the thing thing are absolutely adorable.

    I’d offer a shift to the quote a bit too:

    I have not failed.
    I’ve just found 10,000 ways
    to solve different problems!
    ~ Blaze

  4. Exactly! There is no inherent connection between failing at something and being miserable — it’s only because of how we interpret the event that we feel that way.
