Tonight, check out Vinod Khosla's The Case For Intelligent Failure To Invent The Future that tells why Silicon Valley has succeeded.
As Mr. Khosla states it, "I have experienced the power of doers, the chaotic and naïve world of optimistic entrepreneurs who just try things, admit mistakes, fail, learn, iterate, try again and find solutions – often out of necessity. Accepting, even encouraging, the right kind of failure is the best way to discover the solution to our problems and close the resource gap."
George Bernard Shaw said, "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man." People like Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak who held onto the unreasonable belief they could start a company in a garage that would bring computing to the world.
