Failure is a Learning Tool

,

18 Nov 2017 – Listen, really listen, to some Bob Dylan songs; there are plenty to choose from, impossible for me to have a favorite.  It would be something like ‘anything off of Blood on the Tracks or Blonde on Blonde.’

Dylan’s impact on popular music is incalculable; his impact on me profound.

Favorite lyric (#63): “There’s no success like failure, and failure’s no success at all.”

This applies to, well, anything worth doing, including making art.  You’re going to fail: it’s how we learn.  But it’s not the goal.  Get up and go again.
