A Formula for Success by Thomas J. Watson

Here is a great quote from Tomas J. Watson who built the IBM, Corporation, into the world's largest manufacturer of data-processing equipment.

Would you like me to give you a formula for success?
It's quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure.

You're thinking of failure as the enemy of success.
But it isn't at all. You can be discouraged by failure

- or you can learn from it.

So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can.

Because, remember that's where you'll find success.
