Valli Swerdlow, MSW, Career Coach expert's insight:

I am LD and can't tell you how many times a day I misspell words even with a spell checker. I can spend hours going over one email. I can't afford to hire someone to look over every email I send. It is frustrating but I keep going and hope that my colleagues and clients who know about my situation, because I am open about it, will give me the slack I need.

Here's another process to look at failure - it is called "Church of Failure" where they gather a group of people who share and celebrate failure.


it’s a common theme in business writing: “if you want to succeed double your failure-rate”. That’s my favourite, from Thomas J Watson, Sr., long-serving president of IBM. But everyone from Abe Lincoln to Colonel Sanders apparently loved to fail, and learn from their failures.
