Failure not Hard Work is the road to Success

Educational systems are not preparing people for the 21st century. How to fix this problem ? The answer is: New way of thinking.

Success = Risk = Failure

We used to think that more effort means greater ability to succeed, but that’s not how it always works. You don’t get an ‘A’ for hard work, you only get an ‘A’ for delivering results, and that requires us to take risks, which causes us to fail.

The first time we run a real experiment to discover where we actually are … it’s going to be bad news, it’s probably going to reveal that not only are we not at the targets we need to be, we’re probably impossibly far away. It’s going to seem like a total disaster.
