Stigmatized Failure

What do you think about failure?  What do you think about this idea that there is value in failure?

We have stigmatized failure.  We don’t like it.  We’ve been conditioned to hate it.  We’ve been “educated” against it.  We’re such functional dualists that we can’t think about failure coexisting with success.

Failure is the lab for great ideas.  A few failures has the possibility of refining great ideas.  Since we have stigmatized failure, we need to work hard to create an environment conducive for failing and learning.

How do you un-stigmatize failure?
