“You can fail yet still be successful. But the truth is, you can’t be successful if you haven’t had some failure!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
‘’Everyone knows the Japanese (and Asian) cultural context of ‘saving face’ — it’s extremely important. I was thinking of this today while touring around Tokyo … and thinking about my message of innovation. I’m trying to figure out how to reconcile the two. I haven’t yet, but seized upon this golden rule of innovation!
How do you reconcile the need for failure to the issue of saving face? I’m not quite sure, but it’s very much on my mind as I head off for my evening keynote. Good morning to my followers in North America!’’
