No Failure: It Just Didn't Work the First 10,000 Times

A lesson that we often fail to learn is the lesson of failure. Here's an inspiring reminder of the value of failure from Honda Motors, a company built on failure and built well.

The video, titled "Failure: The Secret to Success," provides insight into the thought process of company founder Soichiro Honda, and how he viewed failure as a means to winning. It also shows how much Honda, a successful car company by all accounts, has failed in the past and what it's learned from those missteps. Have you ever seen an orange 1996 Civic? Neither have we, and you'll know why when you watch the video after the jump. - Autoblog

A co-worker of mine, made a comment after one of our batch jobs failed. "A failure is always an opportunity to learn something."

Compare and contrast with the turgid gloom-and-doom messages from the Earth Hour crowd.
