Unto every leader, a failure — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
Quentin Tarantino endured his first box office flop this year with a movie called Grindhouse. The writer/director says his rejection by the movie-going public felt like a broken heart, and it also dinged his status in Hollywood.
Shocked and depressed, he contacted Steven Spielberg, who has his own tale of woe, an early failure called 1941. Spielberg told him that a director, like any leader, can be judged only on his entire body of work. Even the great ones sometimes fail.
