Fail Successfully

Everyone hates failing. It is never good to know that there was something that we couldn't do. When we fail there is always a group of people right there ready to tell us that we have to learn from it. And while that's all well and good...what does that do for me in the moment? What does that do to me when the crisis isn't over yet? Working through failure as it happens is its own animal. Today we discuss the art of failing successfully through the story of Apollo 13.
