I recently attended a conference in SF called “Failcon”. It was all about how we all ‘fail’ before we can succeed. This is a big lesson for all of us. I tell my students that you have to make many mistakes along the way to learn math……that it’s more than OK to do that….it’s expected.
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
