Why You Need to Fail

Musician and author Derek Sivers explains the importance of failure--for effective learning, growth mindset, and quality through experimentation.


Activity: Take a few minutes and think about a time when you made a really bad mistake. Write down what happened: what was the mistake, why did you make it, how did you feel, what could you have done differently? Reflect a bit more and write down what you learned from making the mistake--maybe about what you were trying to accomplish or about yourself. Divide into small groups and share your experience with others.


Assignment: Be an investigative reporter and ask as many different people as you can to tell you about a bad mistake they made and what they learned from it. Write down their answers. Be sure to get their first name, age, and what they do. Type up all the answers you collect and share them with colleagues or classmates.
