Fail Fast, Fail Often: How Losing Can Help You Winby Ryan Babineaux
Synopses & Reviews
"Bold, bossy and bracing, Fail Fast, Fail Often is like a 200-page shot of B12, meant to energize the listless job seeker."
—New York Times
What if your biggest mistake is that you never make mistakes?
Ryan Babineaux and John Krumboltz, psychologists, career counselors, and creators of the popular Stanford University course Fail Fast, Fail Often,” have come to a compelling conclusion: happy and successful people tend to spend less time planning and more time acting. They get out into the world, try new things, and make mistakes, and in doing so, they benefit from unexpected experiences and opportunities.
Drawing on the authors research in human development and innovation, Fail Fast, Fail Often shows readers how to allow their enthusiasm to guide them, to act boldly, and to leverage their strengths—even if they are terrified of failure.
