StartUp Tip #89: Improve your flirting skills with trial and error

Screen-Shot-2014-04-30-at-09.40.31

If you look at how creativity works in any field, whether it is in music, writing poetry, architecture, science, technology, developing computer programs, there is a constant process of trial and error.

So to be creative in any field means you try things out, tinkering, breaking stuff, hypothesizing, testing, drip by drip.

We don’t always know what we like and what we can do until we start trying new things.

You create your life according to the talents you discover or not.

Too many people go through the whole of their lives in a state of anxiety, thinking: “Well if I try it, it won’t work.”

Anyone who achieves anything in life is prepared to be wrong.

Most learning, especially most startup learning, occurs the same way, through trial and error.

Error occurs whether you want it to or not.

Error is difficult to avoid.

It is not clear that research or preparation have an enormous impact on error, especially marketing error.

Error is clearly not in short supply.

Trial, on the other hand, is quite scarce, especially in some business.

People mistakenly believe that one way to successfully avoid error is to avoid trial.

When starting a business try to expect the rejection and be okay with it.

Consider the fact that, you are fine with either acceptance or rejection just because you will have the chance to improve yourself for the next time.

Improve your flirting skills with trial and error.

We need more trial.

And if you succeed, just keep going out …

Never settle.

As the legendary Michael Jordan has said before:

“I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I have been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
