Your Mistakes Could Change the World by Erik Kessels

About this video


We live in an age where most of the tools we use are close to perfection. Our computers, phones, applications and navigation systems make no mistakes. Yet perfection is not a good starting point to create new ideas. Sometimes we must deliberately make a mistake in order to find a new direction and subsequently achieve success. Society teaches us to avoid mistakes, but for creative people and innovators they are essential. Erik speaks about his new book Failed It!, how mistakes inspire him and how he uses his failures to derive exceptional work.
