The Gift of Failure: The Crucial Difference Between Success and Mastery

The Gift of Failure: The Crucial Difference Between Success and Mastery | Knowledge against wisdom |

"'You gotta be willing to fail… if you’re afraid of failing, you won’t get very far,' Steve Jobs cautioned. How, then, can we transcend that mental block, that existential worry, that keeps us from the very capacity for creative crash that keeps us growing and innovating? That’s precisely what curator and art advocate Sarah Lewis, who has under her belt degrees from Harvard and Oxford, curatorial positions at the Tate Modern and the MoMA, and an appointment on President Obama’s Arts Policy Committee, examines in The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery (public library) — an exploration of how 'discoveries, innovations, and creative endeavors often, perhaps even only, come from uncommon ground' and why this 'improbable ground of creative endeavor' is an enormous source of advantages on the path to self-actualization and fulfillment, brought to life through a tapestry of tribulations turned triumphs by such diverse modern heroes as legendary polar explorer Captain Scott, dance icon Paul Taylor, and pioneering social reformer Frederick Douglass." | by Maria Popova
