When it comes to inventing, you should be familiar with the “F” word. FAILURE.

If you are not failing, you’re not really trying. The only true failure is failing to try.

Here are some examples of what other people judged as failures

“This ‘telephone’ has too many short-comings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.”
–Western Union internal memo, 1876.

“We don’t like their sound, and guitar music is on the way out.”
–Decca Recording Co. rejecting the Beatles, 1962.

Thus the famous pronouncement on Astaire’s first screen test:
“Can’t act. Can’t sing. Balding. Can dance a little.”
