Failure lets you know you’re doing something right, admin and blogger Julie Perrine writes. It signifies that you’re opening yourself to new methods of doing things and implementing new ideas. You are constantly learning and welcome opportunities for improvement. The nature of innovation means there will be failures.
She encourages her fellow admins to remember that not everything they try is going to work, but there’s a chance that what blows up in one’s face might be a clue to figure out a better method or procedure. It’s not the mistake that can break your career, but how you react to it.
