A wonderful quote from the article on Google in The Atlantic about
…the Google concept of “permanent beta” and continuous experimentation—learning what does work by seeing all the things that don’t. “We believe that teams must be nimble and able to fail quickly,”
I love that “able to fail quickly”. It reminds me of the Churchill quote: “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” Innovators don’t fear failure – they see it so often, they’re old friends.
