Celebrating Failure is the definitive how-to manual for leaders seeking to embrace the power of failure as a learning tool to improve their organizations and achieve ever-greater goals. The business world (and, lately, the political arena) is convinced that the number one topic is change. Heath posits that it might well be failure, because if you do it right, failure can become a launching pad for change. Heath contends that "positive failures" are not only necessary steps on the path to success, but encourage greater freedom to take risks in pursuit of one's life goals.
Positive, effective ways to eliminate the "fear of failure" that can hold you back in today's competitive, fast-changing world. Heath's insightful stories lay out his own failures and reveal his human side as a son, father, athlete, and business leader.
I liked the personal experiences shared and the urge to embrace failure. I've had success at times without trying, but have held back on other concepts, waiting to get it perfect. I realize it's my fear of failure that holds me back. Time to just do it!
Fail quickly and fail often. Well at least don't be afraid of it. Sort of 'Ready, Fire, Aim' approach. Through out Ralph Health career in advertising he has learnt much wisdom and this book is worth listening to. Narrated by T. Ryder Smith who sounds a little old and tired but still does a reasonable job. Why listen to this book, because it tells you that living is trying and trying sometimes ends in failure, well as long as you don't learn from it and keep trying it is failure otherwise it is a step to fulfilment. Listen to this book, what have you got to lose?
