Face the Floor

“Every problem contains within itself the seeds of its own solution.”

— Stanley Arnold

At times, it is a good thing to go for something and end up doing it wrong. To slip and face the floor. When that happens, it does hurt and you can feel like you fucked up everything. You might have to reflect on all your actions to find the problem behind the fail. It can be easier to find a quick way to ‘mask’ the ‘symptoms of the problem’, but not to solve the actual problem itself. When masked, the problem will return in another form, usually with a greater mess-up as a result. You thought you had solved the problem, but you did only removed it out of sight. In order to really learn from failures, you need to get to the source of the problem in order to find a solution. This is how problem solving works.
