“Embrace failure.”

Set aside 7 minutes to listen to Milton Glaser, on the fear of failure. Like no other. From Berghs' Exhibition '11 on Vimeo.


  1. Thank you for sharing this, Paul … Both a sobering and inspirational wake up call this Saturday morning.

  2. YES. Lately there is a lot of talk about the benefits of failure. Some sort of jingo-y (eg Tavis Smiley’s “Fail Up”) But Glaser is SO GOOD! And here is a quote that relates well to Glasers’:
    Robert Rauschenberg said, “I usually work in a direction until I know how to do it, then I stop. At the time that I am bored or understand—I use those words interchangeably—another appetite has formed.” Rauschenberg is not just confronting uncertainty, he is sustaining uncertainty.

  3. Sorry, one look @ those head warts and honey I can’t even press play.
