Fail and Fail Again

“I knew that if I failed, I wouldn’t regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying.” – Jeff Bezos

CPAs are conservative, traditional, professional, slow to change, and never want to fail.

That is why I am including an entire Seth Godin post for you to ponder. It is as follows:

UNBEATABLE VS. PERFECT

Google has killed more than 200 projects over the last few decades. They fail all the time. More than once a month they shut down a business that frightened the competition and seduced consumers.

That’s part of the recipe for becoming an unbeatable behemoth. Fail a lot.

Institutions like Western Union and A & P and Woolworth’s and Sears forget this part.

Don’t be complacent. Don’t be afraid. Don’t try to eliminate any chance of failure. Try things, experiment and take some risks. It’s how the most prominent and progressive CPA firms got to be prominent and progressive (and profitable).
