Failures?  By Danny J. Stevens

If events really have no meaning except the meaning we give them, then what is a failure?  In Day 23 of Giant Steps to 2012, the contemplation is on what happens when your efforts are not producing the results.   To reach your goals you may need to become aware of what is working, what is not working, evaluate the outcome, make adjustment and try again.   In this process, the failure is a process of awareness of what did not work.

Again, it is important to write things down in your hardbound journal!  As you run across what is or is not working, journal about it.  You may, and will, return to the journal as you continue to work towards your goals.

Thomas Edison kept a journal of his attempts to create the light bulb.  He used each attempt to move him forward towards his goal and in the process found some interesting results on some of the test which could be used in another project.  The failure in one area lead to other opportunities, and still moved him closer to his goals.

Is there areas where you can learn from your failures to move you closer to your goal?  Was the answer given to you and you failed to remember?  Without the journal, we forget over 80% of what happens in 3 days.  We could have stumbled upon the answer to help us move forward and let is disappear in the ether.  How can you use this to create success now and in the future?
