We all know about the importance of learning from mistakes. “Fail forward,” as they say.
But we shouldn’t just look at our successes as magical moments when everything went right and think these experiences do not hold significant lessons of their own.
In the last episode of The Lede, Demian and I discussed mistakes that have taught us valuable lessons. In this week’s episode, we flip the script and talk about successful moments that taught us just as much.
In this episode, we discuss:
The value of understanding how you accomplished an achievement.
Recognizing and honoring the co-creators of your successes.
Why passion and enthusiasm often accompany success.
The smart way to think about attention.
Overcoming imposter syndrome and trusting yourself.
Celebrating your successes, but knowing when to move on.
