Failing to Fear
This is a cheater post, because all I'm going to do is point you to another blog. That of John Allison, the brilliant artist behind ScaryGoRound, Bad Machinery and Giant Days. He is my national favorite. And it's a cheater post two ways, because all John is going to do is point you to a video by a hoary old gentleman who has some things to say about failure.
I couldn't agree more.
