“Strength of a character isn’t always about how much you can handle before you break. Its also about how much you can handle after you’ve been broken.” –Robert Tew

Some believe winning is everything and, of course, if we have our choice, we will pick it any day over the alternative.

Yet, how can we know enough all the time to make the perfect and right moves all the time at the perfect and right moments to win…all the time?

If we we always win, we are probably not playing sequentially bigger games.

We can learn a lot in the process of winning, and yet there’s no stickability like the learning that comes when we don’t.

A cutting-edge executive of a start-up called in a project manager who had created a series of successful initiatives, a completely untainted record.

He was proud.

She told him that if he didn’t have a miserable failure in the next 6 months, he was fired.

What is an inititative so big there’s no way you can possibly deliver?  And when would now be the perfect time to initiate it?

Got lose-ability?

“Freedom lies at the heart of my willingness to lose everything” –Alanis Morissette
