When things are going well – know one ever asks any questions. Whether it’s school work, your job, your business or startup. People don’t ask analyse how they got there. They’re just glad they are.
What this means is very important for entrepreneurs:
It is possible for things to work and not know why they did. Especially if it’s our first shot at it.
Sure, we may have had a strategy, plan or even defined tactics – but they may have nothing to do with the success we achieved.

This is why mistakes are rad. It’ easy to find out where things went wrong. It’s as simple as crossing that idea off the list and moving onto the next one. We learn from mistakes, rarely success. In addition they teach us important entrepreneurial habits like tenacity. Making them also means we are not suffering from inertia.
The best days for entrepreneurs are the ones when we make the most mistakes.
