Failing at Greater Things (GWTW324)

Are you failing at greater things? A fascinating question inspired from a quote in my journal one year ago. I think a lot about failure, mainly as something to avoid at all cost. But what’s interesting is that failure is a lot like salt in cooking: without it, food is bland and boring, and too much will kill your heart over time. Is there a better way to approach failure that allows me to chase after greater things? I think so.
