Milton Glaser On Fear of Failure

I just found out about this exhibit called Bergh's Exhibition on the Fear of Failure.  As part of the exhibition, several professional creatives submitted videos to the students of the exhibit on the topic of Fear of Failure.  Milton Glaser was one of those.  And the video is amazing in his wisdom put forth on the subject.  I will not try to comment on it, as I would do a butcher's job of doing so...just watch it!

Three of my most favorite quotes from the video:

"The model for personal development is antithetical to the model for professional success".

"The real embarrassing issue about failure, is your own acknowledgment that you're not a genius.  That you are not as good as you thought you were."

"There is only one way out...embrace the failure."
