Embrace failure’s odds

Playing around with marketing photos, since i have a new contract employee.

Embrace failure’s odds.

  • Stuff you do may not work
  • Minimum viable audience is one
  • Definitely won’t be for everyone
  • Don’t read comments
  • Continuously improve
  • Never sacrifice your integrity

Received a lot of critical podcast feedback. So helpful to know what people honestly think. Hoping to get the same critical examination for the “good elements”.

What if they are full of it and what if they are not?

The interesting thing about getting honest feedback is that we should always consider the source.

What if they are full of it? What if they are not?

This makes it tough because often the source itself is reliable, but the source’s exposure and comprehension may be influenced only by second-hand or pre-filtered information.

As a parent or a boss, we often get little exposure to what is actually happening in the day to day. So we rely on others to give us feedback.

The inherent challenge with this perception of reality is our optimism, values, filter, problems, goals, health, and so on, is not based on eye-witness observations.

So joyful and thankful, even though it seemed unappreciated?

One conversation, two people, one profoundly changed (it was me). Although the intent was to help change the other.


Find the good in every situation. It becomes habit, and our joy becomes prolific.

So thankful that a friend and I had an intense, honest, loving, two-hour dinner conversation, prompted by the friend’s question, “Any feedback?”

It hit me two days later that the risk I took – and the content provided – to share ‘brutally honest’ feedback was never acknowledged.

No, “Thank you Jeff for sharing that with me. I truly appreciate you being so completely and utterly honest and insightful.”

Doesn’t matter.

What matters is I answered the question fully and completely.


I can now move on, gratefully.
