FTFP 11 – The Right To Fail and Carry On


Fixing The Fixerpunk episodes cover ideas about changing yourself and society from my own self-development process.

In our life, we have a choice to Carry On, even as we are seen as Wayward Sons or Go To Sleep and tap out in the fight for our goals and the change we want to see in the world. I choose to Be Elite and Carry On. Hesitating in whatever you are doing can ruin both your experience and your success, but reluctance is often caused by relationships and material conditions of a punitive society without adequate social safety nets wherein minor failure results in catastrophic results one cannot recover from. We have a choice in how we structure systems, to allow failure and let people learn to fly or to force people to just give up and Go To Sleep. A progressive approach that includes systems that allow people to recover from failure enables greatness and maximizes the potential of individuals and the community as a whole. We must respect the Right To Fail.
