Seek cultures that make it safe to try | 1

Look for cultures that making it easy to try, fail and learn.

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” Most people find it hard to be quite so optimistic as Mr. Edison about failure. It goes against human nature.

Learning and failing go hand in hand, but unless people feel safe, they won’t take chances.
