The Benefits of Failure

A friend sent me this video last night. It's a speech J.K. Rowling gave at a Harvard Graduation a few years ago. It has nothing (directly) to do with Harry Potter, and everything to do with life itself. It's a great video and definitely worth the few minutes it takes to watch it.

One of my favorite lines:
"It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case, you fail by default."
