Constant minor failure.

Every day I walk past the skate park on the Level, sometimes I stop and look.

I’m no skater, but the thing I often see is the skaters’ persistence. To learn to skate is basically repetition in the face of constant minor failures.

Learning doesn’t happen without these little failures.

How can we make it feel ok to fail safely and repetitively in other contexts?

I was discussing this with a good friend today. We said that we should have a fail evening, where we can all slip up. Perhaps starting with banana skins.
