The men who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed.

Learn from this

Learn from this. Then act on what you learn.

Understand what went wrong and what went right. But rather than bragging or complaining, seek to apply your insights.

Find effective solutions to the problems you’ve identified. Work to expand and to build upon the successes you’ve enjoyed.

You’ve paid for your experience with time, effort, and resources. Now make good and thoughtful use of that experience.

Sweep aside any inklings of resentment, arrogance, anger, or complacence. Instead, set an ambitious goal informed by what you’ve been through, and work to make it happen.

You promised yourself that next time you’ll do better. Now, next time is here.

— Ralph Marston
