Dear CSS Members and Colleagues:
Few things are sure except death and taxes, but one other thing that is a given is your failure. In fact, this is an important part of success. Failure leads to several important positive effects, and all of these can be classified under the term resilience. First, failure teaches us how not to fail. Second, it gives us contrast for success. Third, it strengthens resolve for the next time. These seem simple, but for all of us who fashion ourselves an intellectual entrepreneur, the freedom to fail is essential. Many great companies like Google embed this into their business ethic. Enclosed are a few examples of individuals who have changed the world by first failing and then succeeding.
