Jeff Bezos in his annual shareholder letter:

Failure comes part and parcel with invention. It’s not optional. We understand that and believe in failing early and iterating until we get it right. When this process works, it means our failures are relatively small in size (most experiments can start small), and when we hit on something that is really working for customers, we double-down on it with hopes to turn it into an even bigger success. However, it’s not always as clean as that. Inventing is messy, and over time, it’s certain that we’ll fail at some big bets too.

Always a good read.

Progress is sharpening your pencil.
Progress is lines on a page. Progress is creation. Progress is making mistakes and learning from them. Progress is making new friends. Progress is listening. Progress is thinking big. Progress is feeling better. Progress is going outside. Progress is growth. Progress is recycling. Progress is making our lives easier. Progress is both too fast and too slow at the same time. Progress is feeling worse. Progress is everything looking the same, but different. Progress is sensationalisation and desensitisation. Progress is money and power. Progress is The 1%. Progress is working more hours and earning less money. Progress is false. Progress is treading water. Progress is drawing a line on a map. Progress is the Atlantic Ocean. Progress is beyond the horizon. Progress is the unknown. Progress is writing something bad and being judged. Progress is not caring. Progress is all of this and more.
Progress is sharpening your pencil.
