Black Box Thinking



“Only by redefining failure will we unleash progress, creativity, and resilience.”


The book encourages you to create your own black box in order to better understand and learn from your mistakes. Success is never without failure and mistakes, and so the real question is how you can use all that to your advantage.


KEY TAKEAWAYS:

1) Even though you are unlikely to succeed in the long run unless you are willing to face failure and feedback, we all tend to have a hard time admitting mistakes.

2) Try to look for ideas and facts that are the opposite of yours, while treating your ideas as hypotheses only. 3) The only way to succeed in anything in life is dependent on your attitude towards failure.


READ IT IF: You believe something is right and you may find out that it is actually wrong or if you have been covering up mistakes of your own or those of others.
