Join us on Wednesday, January 11th at GLMV Architecture for a dose of motivation to ring in the New Year!
Mark Fly, P.E. will be presenting: Failure is the Option – How failure, perseverance, and positive attitude lead to innovation and success.
To invent, innovate and discover new concepts, processes or products we must push the boundaries of our knowledge and experience past where we are today. You cannot discover how far you can go without exceeding the limits and failing so that we know what the limits are. This presentation draws on the wisdom and experience of some the most innovative and successful figures currently and in history for wisdom on how to fail and win. This presentation will cover:
• Realize how failure leads to successful outcomes
• Know the difference between an acceptable and unacceptable failure
• Discover how to “make your own luck” through perseverance
• Understand how learning from others mistakes can make us more successful and allow us to learn from our own
