Book recommendation: Failing Forward by John C. Maxwell

When you are out walking and accidentally trip and fall, do you bounce back up like a rubber ball and look around you with a sheepish smile while brushing off the evidence and continue like nothing has happened? Or do you stop for a while wondering what actually made you fall in the first place? What about other mistakes in your life?

Failing Forward

As Albert Einstein said: “We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them”. This means that if we are not willing to find out why we fell or failed, we are bound to repeat the same mistakes again. Only if we take the time to stay down and look around to find the obstacle that made us fall in the first place, we will be able to identify it in advance the next time and solve it or navigate around it with the gained knowledge.
