In my experience, each failure contains the seeds of your next success—if you are willing to learn from it. (Paul Allen, late co-founder of Microsoft)

No one likes to fail, and often we just want to put that failure way back in our minds—just forget about it. But, as Allen suggests, if we examine those past disasters carefully, we may find some hints as to how to avoid the same mistakes in the future. Avoid the errors of the past, but try to determine what did go well and capitalize on it.

Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let your hands not be idle, for you do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well. (Ecclesiastes 11:6)
