Whether you are considering a career change, taking on a new project, learning a new language, or otherwise re-arranging your life, you are about to engage in an experiment. Will it turn out just like you planned? If not, how will you think of it?
|Alexander Graham Bell|
Consider these wise words from from Alexander Graham Bell, on the realization that his aerodrome, a watercraft on pontoons, was not airworthy:
“There are no unsuccessful experiments. Every experiment contains a lesson. If we stop right here, it is the man that is unsuccessful, not the experiment.”
