Daring to be Wrong

Psychologist Carol Dweck, Guy Kawasaki, and Jon Morrow, are all advocates of the ‘dare to fail’ attitude.
Many of the greatest revolutionaries became pioneers because they dared to fail. They all have the courage to be wrong. ‘Revolutionaries don’t just burn the rules. They write new ones… No one pays attention to a coward for very long,’ said Jon Morrow, an Associate Editor of Copyblogger. ‘ And if all you do is what’s “right”, then a coward is what exactly you become.’
Guy Kawasaki is an enterpreneur and the author of Reality Check. He gave a weird but realistic advice when ever you’re at your breaking point: ‘When times get tough, write your own obituary… think hard and list three things you want people to remember you for. This will help prioritize your life.’ I haven’t done this yet but I always intended to buy my own coffin. I also wrote in my post Keeping a Diary that keeping a diary might help you prioritize.
