Planning for the long-term isn’t always about minimizing risks and making sure you’re covered for a rainy day.
It’s also about planning and insulating for failure.
Planning for the experiments that might go awry.
Planning for pivots to new ideas that might not work out the first time through.
Planning for creating something with a small reward but took big time.
It’s about giving yourself time to try something new, fail and try again. When we don’t give ourselves time to do this, we stop getting better, stop learning from our mistakes and stop improving.
Plan for Failure and Hold on For Success!
