Day 18: There's No Success Like Failure

11:51 PM

Bob Dylan once wrote in a song called Love Minus Zero (No Limits), "She knows there's no success like failure, and that failure's no success at all."

Today I've failed to do anything productive since I've spent most of the day in a blanket cocoon suffering from the Flu From Hell, which is still clinging on in spite of the meds I'm taking. Maybe it's just the meds talking, but that song makes me think about failure in general. Can failure ever be a success?

Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Steve Jobs all "failed" to graduate from college. No one can call them failures.

Are there any failures in your life you would consider successes now?

    1. Very true. Anything else is bragging, and that's a failure.
